Friday Funnies--Ancient Style!

Welcome to Friday Funnies where we have fun with all things ancient (be sure to check out our earlier installments of Friday Funnies!).

Thanks to Paul Darnell of Hadrian's Wall Live ( for this contribution, a line from the romp, Carry on Cleo, by the great Caesar himself:

"Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me!"

"Please, I beg you. Do not make me wear those embarrassing shoes! 

It's not even close to  Labor Day!  I'll never live it down!"

"No really, I've got great aim. I'll just hock-up a big ol' loogie
 and when that boat comes near, I'll get 'em this time, I swear!"

Don't forget, send me your captions and/or funny lines and I'll feature them here!

Sally said...

That last one is a hoot, alhtough they are all funny enough I'll send them to my son who appreciates the humor.

Vicky Alvear Shecter said...

Thanks guys! Sally I hope your son enjoys it!

How funny!
Love the last cartoon.
Here's a suggestion for the caption (a take on a Seinfeld episode): "Hey, Mummy, can you spare a square?"

All I can say is that I'm glad I'd finished my M & M's before I read 'em. I'd have choked to death.
On a M & M loogie.

Robyn Hood Black said...

Keep it up, Vicky - Fridays are definitely funnier now! [And I confess, I had to look twice at the last one to figure it out. Hysterical.]

Vicky Alvear Shecter said...

Donna, great line!

Cathy, loogie's and M&M's, thankfully, do not mix!

Robyn, I'm glad you stopped by!

I do enjoy a witty joke. I quite enjoyed the last one, and do believe that the fall of classical society dealt primarily with bad decisions in fashion. We should all take Lady Gaga as a warning.

Vicky Alvear Shecter said...

I agree LoganBishop! Imagine what the ancients would've made of GAGA--Goddess of discord? Horror? Nightmares? ;-)

Unknown said...

Haha.. that last cartoon is hilarious! Love the Alma-Tadema paintings too..

Keep up the great work Vicky!
