Carnival 2011

Next week we are going to have the carnival in school.

We are going to dress like Romans this year.

Here is a website about Roman clothes.

Here is a video about how to make a TOGA with a bed sheet.

Here are some hilarious videos (aquí hay dos vídeos muy muy gracisosos):


Here is a video about Roman toilets. Here is a video about Roman table manners ( sobre como se portan en la mesa de comer). Another video about gladiators. In this video there are no animals to fight the gladiators.

THE LIFE OF BRIAN : What have the Romans ever done for us ?

Click here for a very funny scene from The Life of Brian which illustrates why the Romans are important.

EXPLANATION fo this video:

1.Then men here say they plan to capture Pilate's wife ( capturar la mujer de "Pontius Pilate") then demand that the Roman empire surrender (a cambio piden que se rinde el ejército romano).
2.They say " The Romans have taken everything" ( que los romanos se han llevado todo de ellos y de sus padres y de los padres de sus padres etc.)
3. Then they say " What have the Romans ever done for us? " ( ¿Qué han hecho los romanos para nosotros? A continuación el jefe de la banda, sin ganas, relata la lista de todas las mejorías que han traído los romanos)


And what have they ever given us in return?- The aqueduct?- What?- The aqueduct.- Oh. Yeah, they did give us that. That's true, yeah.- And the sanitation.- Oh, yeah, the sanitation, Reg. Remember what the city used to be like?- I'll grant you the aqueduct and sanitation, the two things the Romans have done.- And the roads.- Yeah, obviously the roads. I mean the roads go without saying, don't they? But apart from the sanitaion, the aqueduct and the roads...- Irrigation.- Medicine.- Education.- Yeah, yeah, all right, fair enough.- And the wine.- That's something we'd really miss, Reg, if the Romans left. - Public baths.- And it's safe to walk in the streets at night now. - They certainly know how to keep order. Let's face it, they're the only ones who could in a place like this.- All right, but apart from sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?- Brought peace?- Oh, peace. Shut up!
