Bad Roman Humor

So my friend, a poet (who’s not a classicist but who nearly was once upon a time in college), picked up a translation of Juvenal and had a few questions for me. We naturally made a few jokes about his name, and even the content of his satires, and this one (perhaps the most obvious) made its way into my sketchbook.

I titled it ‘Bad Roman Humor’ so you wouldn’t have to.
