    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.
