my favorite tidbit about rome is that in the mid-1800s one of the popes didnt like the statues in rome having dicks so he ordered them knocked off. fast forward to the last decade or so and art historians in conjunction with the vatican are trying to erm. restore. the statues. but the dicks were just. kept in a box. so art historians are going around rome, with a box of dicks, trying to match them up to their owner.

It’s like a messed up Cinderella story…

did you guys know the whole “bunny ears” thing in photos originated in medieval times and actually they were horns and they symbolized that you were fucking the guy you were standing behind’s wife. imagine all the four year old boys doing that symbol right this second and not knowing what they’re doing. history is great
