You have surely heard about Ben Carson’s belief that the pyramids in Egypt were built by Joseph for grain storage. Here’s an editorial in Denver Post that discusses it: The pyramids of Egypt and Ben Carson’s bizarre beliefs. We don’t need to give you any excerpts.
As strange as Carson’s belief may be, it’s not very impressive. We think that you, dear reader, can do better — much better. To get your imagination started, your Curmudgeon believes that the pyramids were Egyptian bordellos, and their triangular shape, which could be seen for miles from any direction, suggests … well, female anatomy.
You can do better than that, can’t you? Sure you can! But please, don’t tell us that they were burial tombs for the pharaohs — that’s not what we’re looking for.
The form of today’s challenge is that you must tell us, with reasonable brevity:
You know the rules: A successful entry should be self-explanatory. You may enter the contest as many times as you wish, but you must avoid profanity, vulgarity, childish anatomical analogies, etc. Also, avoid slanderous statements about individuals. Feel free to comment on the entries submitted by others — with praise, criticism, or whatever — but you must do so tastefully.
There may not be a winner of this contest, but if there is, your Curmudgeon will decide, and whenever we get around to it we’ll announce who the winner is. There is no tangible prize — as always in life’s great challenges, the accomplishment is its own reward. We now throw open the comments section, dear reader. Go for it!
