“How do you get in contact with a Greek architect?"/"You column.”

Greek architecture is known for its Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian columns. “Column” sounds like “call him” or “call ‘em.”

A riddle was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on April 20, 2017:

Q: How do you get in contact with a Greek architect?
A: You column.



Reddit—Classical order
Greek orders
There are three distinct orders in Ancient Greek architecture: Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. These three were adopted by the Romans, who modified their capitals. The Roman adoption of the Greek orders took place in the 1st century BC. The three ancient Greek orders have since been consistently used in European Neoclassical architecture.
