A Letter to The Queen Of Spain

In 1493, Christopher Columbus returned to Spain from the New World and told Queen Izabella about his wonderful discovery. However, it was not greeted with joy by everyone. Don Baracko Bama sent a private letter to the Queen where he commented about the recently returned expedition.....

Look. We've been there, done that.

We had all that wonderful money we took from the Jews, and instead of spending it on the army like we should have, sent those three worthless caravels to the West to look for a land route to Kitai. Did they find anything? No! Nothing they found bears the LEAST resemblance to Marco Polo's account. All they found were some sweet-smoking plants, some tasteless roots, and a yellow seed thing. And all the rumors about gold turned out to be nonsense.

We sent three ships and they landed, brought back some plants and some natives, and what else do we have to show for it? We shouldn't be any new expeditions to these so-called India lands. I don't think they're even India. No. We shouldn't be sending any more ships to the West.

I say, forget this Am-ur-rucka stuff. It's just a money hole. We got problems of our own right here in Spain.
