Daily Joke: 2 Louisiana Men Are Inspired by Brit and Irish Metal Detector
One day, a Brit decided to use a metal detector to explore some buried treasures. He was determined that his excavation would lead to an interesting discovery.
So he searched and then marked a point along the River Thames, and began digging up a huge chunk of land. It was a hot summer day, and the sun was shining at its highest point in the sky. Nonetheless, he continued to work.
After digging for a long time, he was able to find a few stray pieces of jewelry. He carefully placed them aside and continued to dig. Suddenly, his face lit up as he laid his eyes on some tangled pieces of copper cables buried 10 feet deep.
He was proud of himself and shared the news with his friends and family. Soon the word spread like wildfire and he made it to the newspapers. The headline read:
"Excavation proves telephony in Britain was widespread 100 years ago."
An Irishman was reading the papers one day, and he was startled to read the headline. He wanted to beat the Brit's record, so he planned to go forward with an excavation of his own.
He took all his tools, including a metal detector, and set off to dig a section of peat bog. Luckily, he found 3 bodies and copper cables buried 20 feet deep. He was happy to have outdone the Brit and broke the news to his friends.
The next day, the Irishman was all over the news, and his successful discovery was the talk of the town. The headline in the newspaper read:
"Excavation proves telephony in Ireland was widespread 200 years ago."
Soon the news of the Irishman and Brit's discoveries reached more people, including two men in Louisiana. They were thrilled to go on a little excavation trip and determined to break all the records.
So the two men set off, selected a piece of land in the bayou, and started digging, reaching 30 feet deep. They were able to find 3 gator skeletons and a few rotting tree stumps.
However, they couldn't find any copper cables despite scanning the area repeatedly with their metal detectors. Nonetheless, they rejoiced and came back, sharing the news with everyone around.
Now the newspaper headline read:
"Louisiana was already using wireless 300 years ago."
