When we people of today look back at ancient cultures we might see many things we do not understand and that are downright strange. How many things do we really understand about cultures that lived hundreds or thousands of years ago? Imagine what historians will say about us and some of our strange habits.
So here is a humorous look at how we are actually very similar to the ancient Mayans. How many things do you have in common?
In the illustration below:
1) Do you have a problem with people walking in public with feathers? or do you have any problem letting the woman walk around like this?
2) Would you pose for a photo with a bat?
3) Would you wear animal print shoes?
4) Do you have tattoos on your legs or shoulder area?
5) Would you wear jaguar print underwear?
Do you like being carried places, especially for special events? Carried by buff guys and flanked with models?
Do you have your own language that other people find hard to read? If so, you have something in common with the Mayans.
Do you use the expression “talk to the hand”?
Do you like corn products? The Mayans certainly liked corn and corn tortillas. Are you just like a Mayan?
How did you do?
If you answered “Yes” to 6 or more questions then you are a Mayan king.
If you answered “Yes” to 5 questions then you are a Mayan priest.
If you answered “Yes” to 4 questions then you are a Mayan warrior.
If you answered “Yes” to 3 or less questions then you just a little bit Mayan.
