Silly Greek Witticisms

In today's Greek lesson we have read two cute paragraphs, and for some reason I shall share them with you.
(since most of you do not have polytonic Greek fonts installed, I include the text as a small image)

And here are my translations into Hebrew:

לביאה שננזפה מפי שועל על שהולידה רק ולד אחד, השיבה לו: "אחד, אבל אריה."

למורה אחד בבית-הספר היו תשעה צלמים של המוּזות, צלם אחד של אפולון, ושני תלמידים. כששאל אותו מישהו כמה תלמידים יש לו, השיב: "עם האלים, שנים-עשר."

I know, I know. I blame the heat. I return you now to your regularly scheduled LJ.
