Sassy Gay Friend: Aeneid

Filed under: Uncategorized — Birgitta @ 8:15 pm

What happens when you get a history/Classics major together with a Russian/English major, when both of them watch a lot of YouTube videos? THIS.

 

Narrator: Meet Queen Dido of Carthage, from Virgil’s Aeneid. She is about to take her own life. This fate could have been avoided IF she had a Sassy Gay Friend.

SGF: What are you doing? What. What. WHAT are you doing?

 

<insert musical intro>

 

Dido: I burn for him! Desire for him gives me no rest!

SGF: So we light ourselves on fire? On FIRE? And what are we STANDING on?

Dido: I have placed him in effigy upon a pyre of his possessions, and we shall burn together!

SGF: This is AENEAS we’re talking about. His baby mama just kicked it on the road from Troy, and he didn’t even NOTICE. Does that sound like long-term relationship potential to YOU?

Dido: He did try to leave without saying goodbye…

SGF: Dido, his mom made you fall in love with him. So instead of lighting yourself up like one of those cheap Persian torches, you’re going to have a nice chat with your sister and MOVE ON. And P.S., those are the most fabulous pumps I’ve ever seen you in.

Dido: Really?

SGF: Yes! Oh my God, I can’t believe you were going to burn them up! You’re so crazy, Dido. You’re a stupid bitch. Come on, let’s get outta here – I hear there are some hottie philosophers getting smashed over at the public baths.
<aside> She’s a stupid bitch.
