Oooh, the villainy of lemonade! heh.
@macsnafu Who knows? Maybe the lemonade is too sour! Maybe she stole it from a baby! Maybe she tortured the lemons and mixed their blood with sugar to do it!
Wait… could our hyperbolphilic friend be Homer, of epic-authorial fame?
No. That couldn’t be Homer. The old man is a Roman (note he says the Greeks have invaded) whereas Homer was Greek.
The wedding is an allusion to the invasion of Troy (Golden apple and all that). Just because the old guy is not Greek, doesn’t mean he is a Roman. The Greeks never invaded Rome. He must be a Trojan.
Now that I think of it, Roy is WAY better off than the old man, in terms of beauty. It seems a mirror could be quite useful to our elder friend.
If he’s a Trojan then they’re in Turkey…..
I’ll keep my mouth shut. But I’m loving this discussion 😉
He can’t be Trojan, he spoke in Greek…. He should have been speaking in Luwian or something. And he also speaks English, which should not be possible if he’s from such a time period. And not to forget the strange birds they saw. I think the old man is just crazy and not a good representative for whatever place or time they landed in.
Don’t forget his first words to Jen: “You do not belong here” – how the heck could he know that? An ordinary native would have said something like “you’re new here” , or “where did you come from?” or the like. But he knows they’re not supposed to be there.
And, As daniel pointed out, he seems to speak English.
