I heard of this through Gretchen. the original is to be found here.
A brief history of Bath.
LOCAL PAGANS: Oooh, hot water comes from the ground! It is a divine miracle! We devote it to our goddess Sulis, who brings wisdom and health!
ROMAN TROOPS: What ho, this wellspring is indeed a wonder of nature!
LOCAL PAGANS: It is sacred to our goddess Sulis, who brings wisdom and health!
ROMAN TROOPS: Hmm, that is like our goddess Minerva, who brings wisdom and health. We claim this spring in the name of... *drumroll* SULIS MINERVA!
LOCAL PAGANS: *headcolumn*
ROMAN TROOPS: And now we're going to build a big-ass shrine, temple, bathhouse, steamroom, strip mall, brothel, and maybe a Starbuckus Maximus over there.
LOCAL PAGANS: We can't wait until you guys get angl0sax0red in a few centuries.
ROMAN TROOPS: What?
LOCAL PAGANS: Nothing. Hey, is Russel Crowe with you?
also, fun with chemistry. lots of fun. the words "imagine a hand grenade dropped in a bathtub" and "cesium, the emperor of alkali metals" are used. quite possibly too much fun.
my O-chem prof told us a story about how they would steal bits of sodium from the store room and drop them out the window onto the snow by the sidewalk in winter when people would walk by. they get to have all the fun.
