thread in mock_the_stupid
about a guy who insisted that I, Claudius

then proceeded to show what Claudius’ diary would have looked like. As a classical history major perhaps I found it funnier than most, especially the last line:
Invaded Britain. Discovered Messalina was cheating on me. M. has married again and her new husband declared himself Emperor of Rome. However, husband now dead, Praetorians unwilling to tell me where M. is. Maybe should marry Aggripina - never married niece before. That son of hers is a good harp player too.
Trips to vomitorium: five. (V. good) Orgies: three. (Must try harder.) Mushrooms eaten: one plate, prepared by A. Feel rather queasy.
