History Is Waaay Funnier Than You Think

Name and Place for Tuesday, November 25 (’14)


Most people dreaded going to history class when they were in school. “It’s sooo boring!” they’d complain. Well, leave it to the Egyptians to liven things up a bit (Egypt is that place left of Milwaukee).

In the 17th century B.C., the Egyptian Empire was split between three competing Pharaohs. One day, apparently bored and looking to tick off another Pharaoh (Sequenere) just for fun, Apepi (Le Pew) sent a letter to Sequenere five hundred miles away. It read as follows;

Get rid of the hippopotami at Thebes. They roar all night, I can hear them all the way up here at Avaris, and their noise is ruining my sleep.

Sequenere responded as any sane person would; he rounded up his army and started a war.

His war ended with getting this...to the face.
