"The gecko wears a tiara."

There is an ancient Sumerian proverb that reads: "Something which has never occurred since time immemorial: a young woman did not fart in her husband's embrace."

No, seriously, there is. It's here.

And, in fact, if you're the sort of person who can't get enough of ancient literature, Oxford has a great site up of nearly 400 literary compositions from ancient Mesopotamia, including a somewhat brief version of the Gilgamesh story. Here you go: The Ancient Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature.
