Q: What Did the Spartan General Say...

To the Athenian tyrant?

A: Get your hippie ass out of town!


  1. I love this legendary quote:

    Philip II of Macedon proclaims: "You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city."

    The Spartan ephors sent back a one word reply: "If" (αἴκα).[18] Subsequently both Philip and Alexander avoided Sparta entirely
