Overheard: No, Not That One

Written by

Not this one either.

A girl reading The Aeneid on the subway is approached by a random older man.

Guy: What are you reading?
Girl: The Aeneid.
Guy: Oh, I remember reading that. I liked the Iliad better.
Girl: Me too. I can’t wait to finish this so I can read the Metamorphoses.
Guy: Oh man, I love Kafka.
Girl: Yeah, me too, he’s awesome.

As Kafka says, “God gives the nuts, but he does not crack them.”

    The Aeneid is far superior to the Iliad and any other literary work ever.
