Top Ten Things Heard On The History Channel's 'Engineering an Empire' Series Hosted By Peter (Robocop) Weller
I think most of you were sharing Daphne's sentiment when you decided this Top Ten was just too darned difficult and confusing for you to play...
But, c'mon...it wasn't THAT difficult...all you had to do was just think: Robocop (and who hasn't seen Robocop?)...hosting a show about ancient cities...
10. Forget an empire, I'm just hoping this gig helps me engineer a career. (email@example.com)
9. Although there is no evidence that the pyramids were built by robots, it's a possibility I feel should be seriously considered. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
8. Lewis! Lewis! Lewis & Clark had nothing to do with engineering this whatsoever. (ParisIuvsMe@aol.com)
7. In any public works project, payoffs, kickbacks, and hush money take time. As a result, Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither was your town's Civic Center. (AuntShecky711@aol.com)
6. Here we see the great temple of Karnak that, even at its height, Robocop could have knocked down in about 10 seconds. (email@example.com)
5. Overheard while standing near a historical burial site: "Dead or alive, you're coming with me!" (firstname.lastname@example.org)
4. The pyramids probably cost upwards of 6000 people their lives to build. Wow - 6000 SUX. (ParisIuvsMe@aol.com)
3. I could take you to hundreds of ancient decadent civilizations. But why bother when I can just give you bus fare to Detroit. (email@example.com)
2. Nice shooting, son...what's its name? Nikon 35mm? (BobaFettish@hotmail.com)
And, on any given day in the outdoor markets, you could probably hear some sleazy Greeceball say...
1. I'd buy that for a drachma! (ParisIuvsMe@aol.com; firstname.lastname@example.org)
