Dense Bodies: The Classics Revisited

"The Trojans advanced in a dense body, with Hector at their head..."
~ Homer, The Illiad

The Illiad.  Those Trojans.  Really!!

The Classics.  We were forced to read them as helpless children.  They break all the rules of writing we've been taught.  Run-on sentences?  Please! I have no respect left, what can I say. But honestly, the Illiad can sometimes be a yawner and my attention tends to wander. And this is the kind of thing that happens.

But seriously: if Dwayne Johnson doesn't have a dense body, then who does? Well, OK, there is The Hulk, but isn't The Rock a lot cuter?
