This post has nothing to do with business, or woodworking for that matter. It’s just very funny.

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of a copper-wire system dating back 100 years, and they came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, California scientists dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: “California archaeologists have found traces of 200-year-old copper-wire system 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 Redneck Rebel Gazette in LaVergne , Tennessee, reported the following: “After digging as deep as 30 feet in an empty field near Smyrna , Bubba Ray Johnson, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Tennessee had already gone wireless.”
