False Quotations

“Almost nothing is funny”
Ptolemy XIII, Egypt, 744BC

“Life is just one everlasting giggle”
Harvey Pinnacle Jnr, Hollywood, 1957

Footnotes
1 Ptolemy was the butt of many jokes in deity identification class. He went on to become a vanquishing demi-God, owner of many slaves and handmaidens, and finally entombed in the only ever inverted pyramid (now non-existent).
2 Harvey Pinnacle Jnr, who seemingly could not put a foot wrong in his glittering career as luminary to the stars, was tragically knocked over by a runaway chariot on the set of Ben Hur a year after his infamous giggle quote.
