A friend of mine who used to keep a brilliant blog until she stopped writing it to pursue other brilliant creative avenues just returned from Italy and reported overhearing the following conversation in the Villa of Mysteries in Pompeii:
GIRL ONE (reading her guidebook’s description of the mural): “To the right, the woman cringes in fear at the flagellation scene on the adjacent wall.”
GIRL TWO: Flagellation?
GIRL ONE: Yeah, she’s sucking some guy off.
GIRL TWO: That’s cool.
I would say “O brave new world, that has such people in’t,” but I think I already used that line somewhere else in this blog in response to a very similar situation.
