Here's the last of the Joke of the Week archives; enjoy!

 

After Alexander the Great died, a corps of centurions was formed to keep guard at his tomb, around the clock. It was agreed that each centurion would keep a four-hour shift. But this was before the advent of the time-piece, and, since sundials did not work at night, the night-shift centurions had a hard time knowing when the four hours were up. So the head of the centurion corps visited an alchemist, who concocted a chemical formula which turned white cloth brown after four hours. The centurions were each instructed to wear a white rag soaked in the chemical around their wrist, and when the white rag turned brown they would know that their shift was completed. This is the origination of the term "Alexander's Rag Time-Band."
