A Grecian exchange

My good friend Calligopoulos told me this story. I present it as told to me. He is beyond reach. He is ‘up there.’

A Greek man took his pants to the tailor to have a small tear repaired.
At the tailor’s premises, he handed over his pants, saying Eumenides?
After examining the pants, the tailor said Euripides?

(Heh, heh! Don’t blame me.)
