|2 aAnd so a Greek named Odysseus thought up the idea of the bTrojan Horse,
3 cWhich the Trojans thought was an offering to their Gods,
4 dOnly it was full of heavily armed Greeks instead,
5 Who jumped out shouting "Surprise!" when the horse had been dragged inside the walls of Troy,
6 eAnd killed all the Trojans,
7 Except for fAeneas,
8 Who had to go found Rome,
9 gBut that's another myth altogether,
10 Though equally funny in its own right,
11 As you might expect.
13 The Greeks laughed themselves sick all the way home,
14 Except for hOdysseus,
15 Who got lost for some reason,
16 For ten years,
17 Which was extremely funny,
18 And caused Odysseus to lose his whole crew,
19 Some of whom fell in love with isirens,
20 Which was funny,
21 And some of whom got turned into jswine,
22 kWhich was even funnier,
23 Until Odysseus arrived home weak with laughter,
24 And found that his wife Penelope was planning to marry the first ape who could string her husband's bow,
25 Which convinced Odysseus to disguise himself,
26 And then kill every one of his wife's suitors,
27 lWhich is what he did,
28 mAnd it was hilarious,
29 Like all Greek jokes,
||30 Though not as funny as the Greek joke called philosophy.
CHAPTER 191 The Greeks thought a lot about things, including the very big things, nlike what is the universe all about anyway, and what should we do about it.
2 When they started to believe their own answers, they knew they had invented ophilosophy,
3 Which proved once again how Chosen they were.
4 In fact, they were so Chosen that they could do philosophy on the side,
5 As a part-time job,
6 pWhich is why so many Greek philosophers were also Greek scientists,
7 Such as Socrates and Plato and so forth,
8 Especially Plato,
9 Who had a lot of funny ideas.
CHAPTER 201 qFor example, Plato thought that all apes should be free,
2 rExcept slaves,
3 sAnd not including women,
4 Which meant that apes should govern themselves,
5 And make up their own laws,
6 And vote about things,
7 Which is called democracy,
8 tMeaning rule by apes.
9 The Greeks even tried democracy,
10 uWhich explains why they stopped being Chosen,
11 vAnd got conquered by the Romans,
12 But not before they had thought up their biggest joke of all,
13 Which is the Greek invention called history.
