You think your job sucks?
Food in Antiquity
Published in 1969, page 39
Text with picture:
A striped hyaena being stuffed with food, presumably with the goose or duck.
From the Mastaba of Gen-ni-ka, about 2500 BC
All day long, stuffing hyenas in the hot sun.
Found a photomontage from the tomb. Listed as the Tomb of Kagemni, not Gen-ni-ka as noted above.
The guy on the right is busy writing in his diary.
Dear Diary, My life sucks. I have stuffed twenty-two hyenas today. My boss is a prick. He told me those are rookie numbers.
I wish I had never taken that correspondence course to become a licensed Hyena Stuffer.
It wasn't all work, though. In the same tomb:
Mmmmmm...fresh stuffed hyena!
