Aristo fannies, Plutus 408BC

Aristophanes wrote a play a long time ago taking the piss out of those who were running the show back then.

A play written 400 yrs before Christ. A very clever script for, what must have been a politically astute audience. Similar in tone to Shakespeare with his sharp wit for mockery of governance, and for the appreciated humour of topical events.
