The joys of old literature...

Call me immature, but I succumbed to a 5min laughing fit upon seeing this while digging through 17-18th century articles in JSTOR*:

(van Leeuwenhoek 1711 Phil. Transac. 27:316-320)

Also, I can't help but mentally read this stuff with a lisp, thanks to the f-shaped s's...
But "they call it a fsucking ram, because it had fsuck'd it's Dam a little before it was killed" is just insane...

*That is what normal people do at 12.30am for fun, right?
