          What's with the "Late Cemetery"? Isn't that the point?

            Beware of the lines leading to "Forum". Funny things can happen.

              During the reign of Claudius, passengers were advised to "M-m-m-mind the g-g-g-g-g-gap."

                    Also note the safety warnings "Beware the Rides of March," which is when Christians are thrown to the lines.

                    Plus the terrorism alerts due to the People's Front of Judaea.

                          Then it's off to the takeaway for that disgusting Roman snack of mice deep-fried in a light batter, "Tempura o mures"
