BILLINGSGATE POST: In a diving expedition off the coast of Carthage, a sunken Roman Galley, dating back to the Punic Wars, was found submerged in 60 feet of water.
Until now, it was thought that these warships were rowed by galley slaves, either convicted criminals sentenced to work at the oar, or a kind of human chattel, often a prisoner of war, assigned to his duty of rowing.
Earlier this year, according to National Geographic, an expedition led by American Slim Everdingle, discovered the nearly-intact galley in waters off the coast of Carthage. Possibly dating back to 146 BC, this vessel may have been part of the armada used when this ancient city was completely destroyed by the Romans.
Along with the rusting rowing robots were found remains of anatomically perfect silicon sex chicks. These were found floating in the concubinage quarters of the galley.
The rowing robots and the anatomically perfect sex chicks easily predate current Japanese models by more than two thousand years.
Slim: “That is even earlier than Michelangelo and da Vinci. Amazing!
Dirty: “Yo, Dude. After a hard day of rowing, it must have been nice to jump one of those silicon chicks.”
