"Honey, pass me the slave"

Or is that "Slave, pass me the honey?"

We all have a little moan about our jobs every so often but after hearing about what certain slaves had to do in Ancient Egypt, we'll never complain about work again (don't hold us to that).

Dave Moore transported us back to circa 2300BC in his latest edition of Dave's World, informing us about King Pepi II who used to cover his slaves in honey so as flies would be attracted to them instead of him. Imagine!?

Our trivia master also has a stinky fact about sweat and reveals why Easter is a bad omen for relationships. Watch that Facebook status!!
