kinda funny-(but at least it's clean!!!!)-
After having dug to a depth of 10 yards last year, New York
scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and
came to the conclusion that their New York ancestors already had a
telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed,
California scientists dug to a depth of 20 yards, and shortly after,
headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: 'California archaeologists
have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded
that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech
communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'
One week later, the 'Hemingford Ledger,' a local news paper in
Hemingford, NE., reported the following: "After digging as deep as
30 yards in corn fields near Berea, NE, Larry the Cable Guy, a
self-taught archaeologist and dyed-in-the-wool Husker fan, reported
that he found absolutely nothing. Larry has therefore concluded that
300 years ago, Nebraska had already gone wireless."
Now, don't hurt me too bad
