Comic #1190

1 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: {manifesting suddenly} WELCOME TO HADES.
2 Marcus: Are you him? Er, he? Hades, I mean. The dark, merciless, unpitying god of the Underworld?
3 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: NO. PLEASE FOLLOW ME. THERE'S JUST SOME PAPYRUSWORK TO BE DONE.
4 Julius: It's worse. He's a bureaucrat.

Of course Romans wouldn't have paperwork, they'd have papyruswork.

The god Hades, ruler of the Underworld, was not actually considered to be evil, but he was uncaring and callous, showing no sympathy towards the tortured souls in his domain. But if you've ever dealt with a bureaucracy, you'll understand Julius' statement.


2015-09-09 Rerun commentary: And of course they'd use Papyrus to write out the papyruswork.

Unless they were comedians, in which case they'd use the even better Comic Papyrus. (Although it seems that this stylish new font has changed its name to Comic Parchment "in an effort to avoid the public shame (and associated legal fees)".)
