Being a new thread and all, I hope this applies...

I like this site (http://www.classicscorner.org) -- it's the only place that I've seen effectively combine cynicism, Charlie Parker, and the Odyssey:
"Homer, in all probability, learned his licks within the brotherhood of bards, and, like Bird, transcended."

Hehe... that's pretty good. I like this one, from the Euthyphro column:

Everyone, ourselves included, hates a know-it-all. Add this to Athens' long list of reasons to kill Socrates. Next to Plato, Socrates was quite possibly the most annoying man in Athens, and in fifth century B.C., that was saying a lot.

Good find.
