Interview of Ashurbanipal

We were lucky enough to get in close to the king and ask him some questions about his daily life:

Interviewer: Do you like how you live in your every day life?

Ashurbanipal: I like it a lot. I get good food and I'm the boss of everyone!

Interviewer: Do you ever have to worry about losing your money?

Ashurbanipal: Never! I can get money for doing nothing!

Interviewer: Do you think you treat your citizens well?

Ashurbanipal: I think I treat my citizens very well. But if they disobey, then there will be consequences.

Interviewer: Ok, thanks for the information

Ashurbanipal: No problem (walks away)
