Guard: I dunno... they say it's called a pinata... The First Attempt
They had to take a swing at it.
Whack a Trojan!
That’s gonna’ hurt.
Thought I saw a spring in your step.
For their sake, I hope they don’t use their spears.
@Dogsniff: Rabbit? I thought it was a donkey! Pretty assinine idea. I see it has a rear exit!
I wonder…Is Wiley’s Homer a reincarnation of THAT Homer?
it’s a llama
An “inside job”?
gmartin: Maybe the Greeks managed to hire some mercenaries who knew how to build a siege engine, for instance a battering ram in a wheeled shed like this:
If you’d never seen anything of the sort before, wouldn’t you describe that as a “giant wooden horse”?
To get to the goodies, you have to break it first!
What happens now?-—————————Well, now, uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I wait until nightfall, and then leap out of the rabbit, taking the French by surprise-not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!-—————————Who leaps out?-—————————Uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I. Uh, leap out of the rabbit, uh and uh….-—————————Oh….-—————————Oh…. Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden badger pinata…
Don’t you just hate when production takes artistic liberties with engineered drawings?
Would you accept the premise that it’s a bear? Then I could say “Beware of Greeks gifting bears”.…No, I didn’t think so.
Typical story told by a war veteran to the folks back home.
When they jump from the rabbit’s butt will they be rolled up into little balls?
Remember Spy vs Spy in Mad Magazine?
I picture one – one of them leave a Trojan Horse outside the other’s gate. The one inside blows up the top with TNT on a stick, then hauls the remaining part – the base on wheels – inside.
The attacker pops up out of the base and clobbers the oh-so-clever one. Heh.
Reminds me of a scene from MONTY PYTHON and THE HOLY GRAIL. Being a wooden rabbit and all… I mean, it’s only natural now… ain’t it… ?Oh get off it mate.
I dunno… I still have trouble believing Homer sang the whole damn thing from memory, but then again, what else does a blind poet have to do in ancient Greece?
It’s the first day of Spring!!
The second attempt was a Trojan elephant. Unfortunately it was too big to fit through the castle gate.
Obviously the real moral to the story is: Beware of MEXICANS bearing gifts!
The Mexican Army?
I don’t suppose there’s any chance there’s a chick named Candy in there………….
I predict it will be a big hit . . . ☻
This is genius…pure and simple. The Holy Grail of funny!
Production is still working on the jackalope horns. Wiley? Your are, aren’t you?
The pinata has more class than using a hooker to betray her people as Joshua did at Jericho. It was less claustrophobic however.
that’s gotta be the worst idea of all!
way offand i love it.
Thanks Dog….Dr. J, my Jackalope. (eight point buck!) is one of my most prized possessions….
Looks more like the American Trojan Horse to me. Keepin out those Furiners.
snerk! OMG, this totally cracks me up!
More than a day into it and nobody has caught the Holy Grail reference, well I fart in your general direction, your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. Well fetchez le vache, I shall not be satisfied until someone deliveries me a shrubbery!
