4th Century Social Media


Flavius Julius Valens Augustus checks his Facebook page
and discovers that he has been trolled again by the Visigoths.
They make memes insulting him.
They go into hysterics criticizing his hair and nose.

He types in his status: "Stop doing this II me. What do you do it IV?"
He adds a sad emoji.
"Why all the hVIII?"

But the Visigoths keep trolling him.
They send a new meme showing a sausage with a face wearing lederhosen.
It says, "Bite me." He unfriends them, but one day they will prevail.

Mini-challenge: "not what we came to see"

Oh dear Jesus, I am dying.

I'm big time sick right now, so laughing over those Roman numerals made me cough so hard that I may have to the ER.

You are a riot, girl! Keep it up.

Hilarious! I love his utter bewilderment. Poor man has no idea why he should be the object of derision. The Roman numerals were an especially brilliant touch.

The ancient mysteries pf the Book of Face revealed, and we find out at last for whom the hell trolls...hilarious, and also, in its way, quite brilliant satire. I would say Black humor, but that would be too Goth.

Good idea of using the Roman numbers Shay, and also for unfriending them to avoid unwanted comments

A sausage that wears lederhosen and says, "Bite me" is chuckle-worthy.

The Roman numerals are funny as well...

The ridiculous grin on my face says this is freaking fantastic.
