5 Pictures Showing "Ur not funny"

Updated on January 5, 2012

In a comment, someone told me that Ur wasn't funny. I wanted to know why not!

Ur was one of the major cities of ancient Sumeria (like there's a modern Sumeria or middle-ages Sumeria). It was a coastal city of the Persian Gulf lying along the Euphrates river.

Already I'm bored. Ur was surely not funny.

Great Ziggurats Batman, Ur isn't Funny!

Sumeria:  Ur is in the south, by Eridu.  Ur later moved to Iraq because it was more fun than Sumeria.  I like to say Sumeria more than Iraq, personally, but Ur does as Ur wants.

Gilgamesh found Sumeria, Ur especially, so not funny that he immigrated to Sydney, Australia.

Nanna was the goddess of Ur.  When I Googled her, this is what I found.  She doesn't look amused or amusing.  She frankly scares me.

Nebuchadnezzar II rebuilt the Great Ziggurat of Ur.  He also stomped the Jews.  He repented of his stomping after the Jewish god smote him a bit.  He does not look like a funny guy.

      You must know the owners of this site, and this hub must have survived because of nepotism. Every time i write a hub, and save it unpublished, so i can finish it later, i get a warning that it is too short and will not be allowed to be published. I assumed ((i know, i know, one should never assume as it generally makes an ass/(out of)u and me)), anyway i did assume that they meant too short in wordage, not length meaning space taken up by pictures?..

      Thanks! If I had been better at languages, I wanted to study ancient history. However, French, Latin, German, and Spanish just resulted in me having the wrong word in any language. My high school Latin teacher used to wander in and out of many languages, but he had a grasp on what he was doing. I just come up with something like, "Hola, Agricola, wie geht's? Ca va?" It makes perfect sense to me, but no one else.

      As an anthropologist-by-training-and-avocation, I take exception to your taking a jab at Ur! It was a major urban center, very early on, and marked the beginnings of our current sociopolitical systems and economies: among the first sedentary civilizations, rather than nomadic; therefore, among the first to stratify society.

      However, that said, I _thoroughly enjoyed_ your hub as a jab at what the Urban Dictionary calls the "Moronic, half-assed spelling or "your" or "you're" used by close-minded, slow chatroom/AOLer individuals who can't type fast enough.." (partial quote from http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ur)

      I cannot believe that someone would post such an inane comment in a _writer's_ community! If the person does not find you funny, then there's simply no need to comment, follow you, or read anything you write!

      I, however, find your wit hilarious, a breath of fresh air! So, I, at least, will follow you and continue to read ur...er...your...hubs! :-) (And, it seems I am not alone in this assessment!)

      Again, thanks for the comedic, acerbic, witty (um, don't have my Thesaurus handy, but you can check out many more synonyms, I'm sure!) writing, providing much food for thought as well as many laughs!

      I think that ancient history is real interesting. That's my neice's cat. She has dogs and they were attacking her, so my neice brought her over to my place. She's a real sweetheart. Her name is Sasha.

      I love ancient history, but having fun wasn't what the world was about back then. Then again, I was surprised that this hub was received well at all since it was a response to a jab someone left me on another hub...

      Also, when did you steal my cat? I'm sure that's my cat pictured next to your comment, you thief.

      Great pictures. Ur doesn't look funny, the picture of Nana does look scary. Great hub.
