The Ancient Greeks pre-empted the Dead Parrot sketch

According to the article in Reuters Oddly Enough section for Nov 14 it has been discovered that the ancient Greeks had their own version of the Monty Python Dead Parrot sketch! That one invoves a dead slave but follows the gag pretty well.

I guess some things are timeless. Being a long time Python fan that sketch is classic. If you don’t know this sketch check it out the You Tube video.

I guess there are some things older than me… er dirt.
