After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire

dating back 100 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone

network more than 100 years ago.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed,

a California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story in the

LA Times read: ‘California archaeologists, finding traces of 200 year old copper wire,

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 Pioneer Press, a local newspaper in Minnesota, reported the following:

After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Embarass, Minnesota,

Ole Olson, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.

Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Minnesota had already gone wireless.

Thank Heavens for Ole.

I think that’s why Randy Moss got fired from the Vikings.

He was operating on the wrong frequency.

He forgot to switch wireless providers. <(O:}&
