For the Classicists

I watched Horrible Histories with my daughter this evening, and was particularly tickled by the section on Roman Gods Direct. (The Athens/Sparta Wife Swap parody was pretty good too.)

I really rate the TV series of Horrible Histories - and more so than the books, which just don't have the same line in smart pop culture references. Who can forget the Four Georges singing Born 2 Rule, for example? At least as good as Westlife, for my money (though it bugs me that they don't seem to realise the relationship of George II to George III).
