How a Scotish man may have looked at the time of Emperor Hadrian

Some early Roman graffiti has been found on Hadrian's Wall situated on the English/Scotish border.

The wall which was built during the time of Emperor Hadrian AD117 was a defence from the mad blue faced Scottish warriors who the Romans thought of as mad men, that was before the bagpipes and haggis had made an entry.

The graffiti is still clearly readable. It warns of a man in the future who depicts the Scottish blue faced warrior with an American accent, wide jaw line with slightly too much make up on his eyes.

It tells of a moving picture system which cannot hide extremely poor acting. Some unreadable words follow which looks like BR?V?HEA?T and "Mel Givesome" Archaeologists are still trying to brake the code but it does seem as if it will be of no consequence.

Also along side the graffiti is a carving of what is described as a dish or cup, it has written on it OSCAR. There is much speculation as to what it may mean but it has been suggested that it could be a reference to Oscar Wilde who died in 1900 while in Paris after fighting a life long battle with a limp wrist. If this is the case it would be an amazing prediction made by a long forgotten Roman solder.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
