Happy Brittany Day!

Today is Brittany's Birthday!
(Brittany Restall, that is)

In the joyous spirit of the occasion, here are a couple of ancient jokes from Hierocles and Philagrius, enjoy!

228. "A tipsy fellow being reproached by certain persons that drinking so much he was not in his senses, but he not being able to see clearly, on account of the wine, replied, "Am I drunk, or you who have two faces?""

231. "A person with bad breath wishing to commit suicide and having wrapped up his head he opened his mouth wide."

253. "A pedant was voyaging in a storm and each of his fellow passengers laying hold of some object to save himself, he grasped one of the anchors."
