At a banquet in Ancient Greece, some of the guests mocked the philosopher Diogenes by calling him a dog and throwing bones at him. So Diogenes lifted his leg and urinated on them.

The ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes was known for mocking people. When watching a hopeless archer failing to hit his target, Diogenes went and sat by it, saying it was the safest place. When he saw a prostitute’s son throwing rocks at a crowd, he said, “Careful, son. Don’t hit your father.”
