Today’s one-minute sketch is of famed Carthaginian military commander, and father of modern military tactics, Hannibal.

He was a mighty sh*t kicker, and used elephants to run roughshot over the Roman Empire in the Second Punic War! He shook the sh*t out of the Romans so bad that for generations, whenever disaster struck or a loud noise was heard, people would exclain “Hannibal ad portas!” – which translates to “Hannibal is at the gates!”
