Hold your tongue


I've often read that the ancient Greeks didn't have purses and carried coins in their mouths. There isn't a whole lot of proof of this though.

I am so poor I don't have to hide money.

If a burglar breaks into my house looking for money I would join in and help search.

99.9% possibility the robber is Denmark.
It's just that kind of stunt he'd pull off, lol:XD:

Somebody probably jumped to that conclusion after finding buried Greek dead with coins in their mouths. But that wasn't for everyday use, that was to pay Charon on the way to the underworld.

No wonder they couldn't swallow their pride.
Bad joke I know.

The Ancient Greeks put coins into people's mouths when they died so they'd be able to pay for passage to the land of the dead. Never heard anything about people actually carrying coins in their mouth...

Just don't tell someone you are going perform a Greek robbery when you plan to kiss them. They are liable to get the wrong end of it.
