imagine saying "dear me, I think I'm becoming a god," and then getting diarrhea so bad that u die
@geet of all the absolutely hilarious last words attributed to emperors, "I think I'm becoming a god" and "an emperor should die standing" followed by shitting themself to death is an all timer
@geet I had a baseball coach who said he became a born again Christian when he got what sounded like dysentery. He was puking and shitting his brains out for days and then saw an angel. I bet he did
@geet I believe the reading here is that Vespasian was making a joke about the deification of Emperors after their death. The irony is in the proclamation not in the outcome.
