Possibly the dumbest thing I've ever written about.

The following is true. Not overly funny or even interesting.

But true.

I got the newest issue of National Geographic and there is an article about King Herod of Judea in it.

He was in power around 30 BC or so.

His first wife's name was Doris.


(my first wife's name is Wifey)

You wish Hillary was your wife.

Clinky is my HERO!

No way is this the dumbest thing you've ever written about.

Doris was just his first wife--she got banished (with their son "Antipater"). Subsequently, she got acting working appearing opposite Rock Hudsoniad in plays.

Mariamne was Herod's second wife--until she got executed because her "favorite eunuch" said she was dissatisfied with Herod.

Imagine having enough eunuchs gadding about to have a favorite eunuch.

Make that "got acting work." My favorite eunuch typed that for me and made an error.

You Nick, too?

Why would anyone want a eunuch? A eunuch is like a broken pencil...
