Hidden amongst the hieroglyphics in the Egyptian themed artwork for Iron Maiden's POWERSLAVE album (1984):

...graffiti that says "Indiana Jones Was Here"

...Mickey Mouse's face

...a "Kilroy" face with the caption "Wot? No Guinness?"

The worlds oldest known "Yo mama" joke was dated at around 3,500 years old. The full text has been lost to time, alas and all that remains is "...of your mother is by the one who has intercourse with her. What/who is it?"

Even older than this at approximately 3,900 years is a Babylonian fart joke. "Something which has never occurred since time immemorial - a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap."

Jokes in Babylonian times seem to have left something to be desired I feel and may explain why you don't see any ancient Babylonians walking around today.

I guesseth. He knoweth.

Excerpts from Brian Morton's essay in the New York Times Book Review (January 13, 2019 issue.)
Examples of writers who show . . . in their writings.

anti-semitism
Edith Wharton
Dostoyevsky

racism
Walt Whitman
Joseph Conrad

sexism
Ernest Hemingway
Richard Wright

classism
Virginia Woolf
E. M. Forster

I am surprised that homophobia is not included, as a professor of Creative Writing at Swarthmore and a published author, I am sure he knows examples of such, as i'd only be guessing, I won't include any, but, I do know it is one of the oldest prejudices to be found in literature, dating back to Boccaccio and Dante, if not earlier.

Next time: when the production is done, the battle is only half won.

When a person cries and the first drop of tears come from the right eye, its happiness. if it from left eye, it’s pain.

When the production is done, the battle is only half won.
Then comes the promotion.

Which is one of the reasons why the Walt Disney Company is so successful, as they promote, not only thru their international theme parks, but, also thru their . . .

book publishing -- Broadway productions -- comic books -- cruise ships --  European river cruises -- games (both board and computer) -- guided adventure tours -- ice shows -- live stage shows -- merchandise -- music -- radio programs -- shopping venues -- sound recordings -- transportation vehicles -- TV shows -- vacation ressorts -- virtual reality -- websites -- and upcoming streaming services.

Next time: hindsight being 20/20.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
