Brilliant, just... throw all the superlatives you can think of into a blender, mix, and drink.

Then do it again.

Three pharaohs walk into a place of drinking.

They order some beers, and talk about how their reigns went.

Some hours later, they grow tired, and decide to collect their bill. The tender of the place of drinking puts all their drinks on one bill.

"That'll be 60 debens" he says, so they all pay 20 debins and go on their way.

Walking home, they talk about the establishments.

Nepherites I, who had drank the most, said "A fine establishment. Good beer, good lighting, and cheap drinks."

Psammuthes, who had drank a moderate amount, said "No, I think it was a mediocre establishments. The beer was average, it was only moderately clean, and the beer was averaged price. What did you think of it, Hakor?"

Hacor, who had only had one or two drinks, said "I thought the place was terrible. The beer was sour, it was too loud, and on top of that, the tender, Egypt me!"

(Hey, the Egptians may have been the first to do a lot of things, but they usually weren't very good on their first try.)

I read this post last night and laughed and laughed, but I didn't really have anything to add to the thread. Now I can say that this comic is hysterical and point out to kvn8907, who's joke was a brilliant follow-up, that the word he was looking for was "reign".

They could have been talking about the weather they've experienced and how much rain they have in their lands.

Actually, that's how I read it the first time. It didn't make all that much sense, and reign works much better, but I rolled with it anyway. Comic and followup are fantastic and stuff.

EDIT'D!

I knew it didn't look right. I thought I put down "rein", but that wouldn't have been right either, and would have made even less sense.

Hay! The rule is whenever you make a post correcting someone, you half to make a mistake yourself.

And let me guess... when you're correcting somebody for not making a mistake, you have to make two mistakes?
