A simple translation for slightly less informed readers.
THAT BOOK IS WORTH MORE THAN A LAMBORGHINI, A FERRARI, AND A PORSCHE!!!
and even that is a gross understatement
You could buy one of each of those, with gold trim interior, a diamond encrusted hood ornament, using some endangered species as seat and wheel covers, and a sound system that would make an audiophile orgasm…and STILL have money left over for the price of that book.
F*** that noise you can buy Batman. And then you’d have access to all those bruises and he said he’d still be set and then you could have you still got the book it’s the perfect crime!!!
AND a yacht! All combined.
What kind of library lets her check out a book like THAT?
Wrong question. What kind of library HAS a book like that?
Then again, she doesn’t say it’s the original copy…
My thought exactly.
more importantly: where is that library and where can i get a pass for that one
Perhaps one where the head Lirarian only says “Oook!”
I’m sure the Uptown library would have one… But all the Kerouac books – those got stolen.
A library run by the Sphinx?
My brain somehow replaced Gilgamesh with Gargamel (it’s almost 2 AM, gimme a break) and I thought HOLYCRAPSMURFSWHAT?!
Ugh. Clearly it’s time for bed.
Kessog, I know your avatar is from Sheldon, but I saw this snake and thought of a Jin parody…
anything would be better than the translation I had to read in college… god that was so bad
Yeah, they happened to have a copy at the library…
I’m guessing that fine is going to be a BEEYOTCH to pay back…
What an en-VELLUM-ping story! (Pun jar screams obscenities at me)
You know how I know it’s not Sumerian? Because the Sumerian stories behind it were about Bilgamesh. “Gilgamesh” is the Akkadian version.
