Joke book from time of Biblical Exodus found

13 posts in this topic

Crude jokes, beer and a hearty disregard for politicians were part of life in ancient Mesopotamia - 3,500 years ago.

A newly translated tablet from the area of present-day Iraq runs through a series of riddles which show that even in 1,500BC, people liked a puzzle.

Modern audiences, though, should not expect to have their sides split - or indeed to solve any of the riddles, which are rather tricky (the riddles and their solutions are below).

it seems "yo momma" was the height of wit in those days too.

"'... of your mother, is by the one who has intercourse with her. Who is it?'

I suppose a joke from Biblical times might be: Why did the chicken cross the road?

Because the LORD was about to Smite it.

:unsure2:
