Guy to tailor: “Eumenides?”
Tailor to guy “Why, Euripides?”
/oldest joke on earth
So old, it almost looks new!
That’s a Classics joke.
I must be stupid. I know what the Georgics is, and I know of the song “Sweet Georgia Brown” – but I can’t understand the connexion between the two, nor with Raphael’s painting. Is this some American joke? Maybe it’s because the basketballs are invisible. Is that like the Emperor’s new clothes?
PS – are the invisible basketballs brown?
Reminds me of the metaphysical joke:
Q: What’s red and invisible?
A: No tomatoes.
Great – now I’ll never be able to see that picture again without snickering!
