really liked it

Even in the modern era, most of the jokes are still fairly relevant. The cross between the use of slapstick comedy and the more subtler jokes make for an enjoyable read. It is even more relevant when you know who Euripides (and co.) is. The brutal mockery aimed at the famous misogynist opens another door. And... Who knew there were so many cross-dressers in Athens?
