Sadly, the tablet itself has since disappeared, but van Dijk left behind a copy of what the tablet had to say, as well as the delightfully pissy assertion that the tablet featured "very careless writing" and so was obviously the work of a student. Next up, a cutting bit of political humor:. Or perhaps the original answer wasn't lost at all, and maybe the whole point is that nothing human or otherwise would ever deign to have ancient Babylonian sex with this poor unfortunate's mother. The tablet in question was first discovered back in by an archaeologist named J. But enough with these warm-up acts - let's get to the headliner, the ancient Babylonian "yo mama" joke. Yes, tragically, this no doubt devastating takedown of somebody's mother's sexual proclivities has been lost to history. The translation across 35 centuries does the riddle no favors, but to be fair - I can at least see how that has the structure of something we might call a joke, in that it describes the punitive powers of a governor in less than flattering terms. Though they call the tablet an example of "wisdom literature," meaning these the riddles were metaphors meant to impart pithy little truths.
