Kid Doodles.

From a 12th century Russian schoolboy. Via Futility Closet, which -- besides Neatorama -- is just the place to be these days. I'm amazed at the stuff Greg Ross keeps turning up.

That particular "gramota" (birchbark letter) is the one most often reproduced in Russian history textbooks. Another one that is mentioned marginally less often looks like this:

...and goes, approximately, "an ignorant one wrote this, a thoughtless one said this, and you who reads this is [presumably expletive fragment torn off]". Or, in modern parlance, "IF U READ THIS UR A FAG".
