Why would anyone in Ancient Egypt pretend to have a pistol thousands of years before it was invented? It doesn't really make sense, now does it?

I, for one, have never heard of a squid with wings, arms, and legs. It doesn't really make sense, now does it?

I'm quite certain that Mayans didn't have green Klingon noses. It doesn't really make sense, now does it?

Why would anyone wear an inner tube on their head in the 15th century, or at any time in history for that matter? It doesn't really make sense, now does it?
