317. “This looks like a strange version of ‘Lysistrata.'”

The episode:Catalina Caper,” 204

The riff: Observed by Crow as a group of hotties at the beach all get angry in unison and slap their various menfolk for a perceived slight to the group.

The explanation:Lysistrata” is an ancient Greek comedy written in 411 B.C. by the Greek playwright Aristophanes. It’s a classic comedy about the battle of the sexes, wherein the Greek women attempt to end the Peloponnesian War by electing to withhold sex in unison until their men agree to seek peace. It is still staged to this day, almost 2,500 years later.

Novelty factor: I’ve never heard the title before, but I could swear I’ve heard the plot of this play before.
