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...

HUH?? (DaphnetheRed@yahoo.com)

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. (astae@paonline.com)

9. Although there is no evidence that the pyramids were built by robots, it's a possibility I feel should be seriously considered. (changetion@gmail.com)

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. (tpanner@hotmail.com)

5. Overheard while standing near a historical burial site: "Dead or alive, you're coming with me!" (leissuit@msn.com)

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. (maxcel200@aol.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; rsherman@netplexgroup.com)
