Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Gone fishing

From the Westcar Papyrus, roughly dated at 1600 BCE, and believed to be about King Snorfru:

Q: How do you entertain a bored pharaoh?
You sail a boatload of young women dressed only in fishing nets down the Nile and urge the pharaoh to go catch a fish.
