"I prefer to think of scribe in the Mesoamerican tradition - the Scribe
the court history as it happened. He - and it probably was a he - is
depicted as a rabbit on Mayan iconography. Pretty cool. It was terribly
important to have the scribe writer the documents to verify and justify the
current king/queen and that all was right with the world. Of course, the
royalty was running long sharp thorns thru their penises or tongues to give
blood to the gods. Then again, I've been on projects where that was going
on, so it's not that different. I'd rather be documenting than participating
in any case."
They run thorns where? Take a memo....never ever accept a job as a scribe to
a Mayan King or Queen.
