Funny Excerpts from Student Essays..
Eventually, the Ramons conquered the Geeks. History calls
people Romans because they never stayed in one place for
very long. At Roman banquets, the guests wore garlics in
their hair. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the
battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him because
they thought he was going to be made king. Nero was a cruel
tyranny who would torture his poor subjects by playing the
fiddle to them.
In midevil times most of the people were alliterate. The
greatest writer of the time was Chaucer, who wrote many
poems and verses and also wrote literature. Another tale
tells of William Tell, who shot an arrow through an apple
while standing on his son’s head.
Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving
people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an over-
dose of wedlock.
The government of England was a limited mockery. Henry VIII
found walking difficult because he had an abbess on his knee.
Queen Elizabeth was the “Virgin Queen.” As a queen she was a
success. When Elizabeth exposed herself before her troops,
they all shouted, “hurrah.” Then her navy went out and
defeated the Spanish Armadillo.
The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespear.
Shakespear never made much money and is famous only because
of his plays. He lived at Windsor with his merry wives,
writing tragedies, comedies, and errors.
In one of Shakespear’s famous plays, Hamlet rations out his
situation by relieving himself in a long soliloquy. In
another, Lady Macbeth tries to convince Macbeth to kill the
King by attacking his manhood. Romeo and Juliet are an
example of a heroic couplet. Writing at the same time as
Shakespear was Miguel Cervantes. He wrote Donkey Hote. The
next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote Paradise
Lost. Then his wife died and he wrote Paradise Regained.😁
In the Olympic Games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the
biscuits, and threw the java. The reward to the victor was a
coral wreath. The government of Athens was democratic because
people took the law into their own hands. There were no wars
in Greece, as the mountains were so high that they couldn’t
climb over to see what their neighbors were doing. When they
fought with the Persians, the Greeks were outnumbered because
the Persians had more men.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a wonderful Wednesday people, and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace I am outta here, Eucman!😁😎

“There!” my mother pointed. “It’s my own personal web sight!”😐

And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”
