When Rome fell...


...this kind of thing was being tolerated.

Cave Canem. Looks like everything's going to the dogs. Supposing, that is, that there IS a causal relationship between the two parts of your sentence. For example, I could site the fact that when Rome fell, people were not eating asparagus--but I don't think that the lack of asparagus consumption would be a viable cause of the destruction of the Roman Empire. ...aaaand that was totally pointless. I think I've slept too much today...

No - Rome fell went cocker spaniels thought that they had the right to WAKE ONES OWNER UP AT 3 AM to go outside. 3 AM! It is a dark and scary world out there! I don't like getting up before I can see the hand in front of my face! Or the burglar in front of my door or whatever the case may be. Stupid cocker spaniels, may Jupiter curse them.

According to the Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board, a 5.3 ounce serving of asparagus provides 60% of the recommended daily allowance for folacin. When was the last time you tried fighting of hordes of Germans (with battle-maddened cocker spaniels) with depleted folacin reserves?

Rome, or the Roman Empire, truly went to the dogs. People were lying around on couches to eat. The dogs got their own rooms. Hansonius, please do not let your empire fall to the dogs. We do not want to remember another date. Just a brain refresher...Please tell me what happened in 1453.(seeing if teachers forget anything!)

The "Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board?!" I must have underestimated that vegetable--surely anything with its own advisory board is a fearsome little piece of greenery indeed. Methinks Germans imbued with asparagus would be formidable foes. And considering that your toddler's minions are already conquering the furniture, I would suggest permanently barring asparagus from the household; it's clearly a dangerous food.

In 1453 the city of Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks. Sic transit gloria mundi...

You truly are the source of all knowledge! did I get that question right on the final??

Hansonius said...

In all modesty I'm only the conduit of all knowledge, not its source.
