So, I'm going to be the ring bearer, eh? Well I know one guy who can help you choose your rings.



Meet Hannibal, the great Carthaginian general. Here he is back at Carthage showing off how many battles against the Romans he's won by dumping onto the ground all their signet rings. Take your pick. This guy's got a lot of rings, and he'd be more than happy to share them with you.


Simia: Do you know anyone who lives in this alley?...I'm talking to you.
Ballio:I know one...myself.
Simia:You're lucky. As men go, not one in ten can say he knows himself.
