Ontarians

A little humor sent to me from my friend Dave back home in Michigan:

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year,  Toronto 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 Ontarian’s, in the weeks that followed, a Vancouver archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story published in the Vancouver Province: “BC archaeologists, finding traces of 130-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 30 years earlier than Ontario”.

One week later, the Newfoundland Telegram in St Johns, reported the following: “After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in St John’s,  Newfoundland, James Smith, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing at all.  James has therefore concluded that 150 years ago, Newfoundland had already gone wireless.”

  1. Very good, John! 😀 I seem to remember a very similar joke about New Zealanders, told by Aussies. Or was it about us Aussies, told by New Zealanders? No matter! It has got to be a great joke that gets told around the globe.

Your thoughts?
