A Tale Of Archaeology

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York
archeologists 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 Jersey Journal, a local newspaper in Jersey
City , New Jersey , reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 30 feet in his back yard, Vinny 'The
Salami' Manziano, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he
found absolutely nothing. Vinny has therefore concluded that 300
years ago, New Jersey had already gone wireless."
