Di (aka Pensitivity101) hosts Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today fellow blogger Jim Adams has provided our fodder for fibbing, and it’s all about early humans.
1. What are Neandertals? It’s the family name of the Norwegian adventure, Thor Neandertal.
2. Why did man settle in the Euphrates Valley? Because the Euphrates Mountains is where the dragons roamed.
3. What caused the Ice age? The freezer needed defrosting.
4. What kind of water is in the Yellow River? You don’t want to know. Just don’t drink it.
5. What is the world’s oldest city? Methuselaphia.
6. Why did the Nile River rise every summer, overflow its banks, and flood Egypt? Because the damn dam kept breaking.
7. Who invented soap? Mr. Clean.
8. Why did Nimrod build the Tower of Babel? Because he was a foolish person, an idiot (i.e., a nimrod).
9. Who is the Scorpion King? He was posthumously named king after he had promised not to sting the frog in the middle of the river but did it anyway and drowned in the river.
10. Why was the Great Pyramid built? To house a new Casino in Las Vegas.
