Timeo Aussies et dona ferentes

No, I haven’t gone all classical on you, but it seemed the best title in the circumstances. It is often said that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. It seems the same may apply to mythology, if this video is anything to go by.




Nice to see that the Turkish Consul-General has remembered history, or indeed mythology. And that someone in the Australian army knows their Homer[1]. Or has at least seen a movie.

Quite superb silliness.

[1] No, not Mr Simpson[2][3]
[2] Who I don’t get to see any more, mutter
[3] Though it seems the Trojan Horse isn’t in Homer’s Illiad. It was that Virgil bloke, apparently. And I thought he was in Thunderbirds :huh:
