Thousands of years ago in Mesopotamia…

Posted on
Thousands of years ago in Mesopotamia, there was a boy named Nic, who enjoyed eating outside. All the other kids picked on Nic for that, and that’s how the word ‘picnic’ came about. Kids called him really bad names, such as “ostrich fart” and “aaaardvark whiskers” (originally, aardvark had four a’s).
Nic took revenge on the kids, by training ants to steal the kids toys for him. He rewarded the ants with garlic bread crumbs and asparagus.
This is why to this day, ants invade picnics, and think that everybody’s name is Nic.
