August 27, 410

On August 27, 410 CE, the Visigoths finally ended their sacking of Rome. When questioned, most of the barbarians said that a good sacking of a world-class city is like a bunch of fish. After three days, it just begins to smell (from the dead bodies). They also said after the initial raping, plundering, and pillaging, there’s only so much more raping, plundering and pillaging that you can do. They considered going to the Coliseum and watching a lion eat a Christian or two, but they’d already raped and pillaged them. The lions and the Christians, so they figured they just gather up their souvenirs and head home.
