Excerpts from student essays. We all have a lot to learn.
The inhabitants of ancient Egypt were called mummies.
They lived in the Sarah Dessert and traveled by Camelot. The climate
of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere, so
certain areas of the dessert are cultivated by irritation. The Egyptians
built the Pyramids in the shape of a huge triangular cube. The Pyramids
are a range of mountains between France and Spain.
The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the
first book of the Bible, Guinesses, Adam and Eve were created from an
apple tree. One of their children, Cain, once asked, "Am I my brother's
son?" God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac on Mount Montezuma.
Jacob, son of Isaac, stole his brother's birth mark. Jacob was a patriarch
who brought up his twelve sons to be patriarchs, but they did not take
to it. One of Jacob's sons, Joseph, gave refuse to the Israelites.
Pharaoh forced the Hebrew slaves to make bread without
straw. Moses led them to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread,
which is bread made without any ingredients. Afterwards, Moses went
up on Mount Cyanide to get the Ten Commandments. David was a Hebrew
king skilled at playing the liar. He fought with the Philatelists, a
race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon, one of David's
sons, had 500 wives and 500 porcupines.
Without the Greeks we wouldn't have history. The Greeks
invented three kinds of columns - Corinthian, Doric, and Ironic. They
also had myths. A myth is a female moth. One myth says that the mother
of Achilles dipped him in the River Stynx until he became intollerable.
Achilles appears in The Iliad, by Homer. Homer also wrote The Oddity,
in which Penelope was the last hardship that Ulysses endured on his
journey. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man
of that name.
Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around
giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose
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.
