call HART Crazy … but
LOL .. I’ve seen this in many forms … from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland, from New York City to Los Angeles .. but, it’s always fun to add a local twist to this story 😀
COPPER WIRE DISCOVERED
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of Vancouver, B.C. scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by Vancouver, in the weeks that followed, a Toronto, Ontario, archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Trenton. Shortly after, a story in the Toronto Sun read: “ Toronto archaeologists report a finding of 200 year old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than Vancouver.”
One week later, a local newspaper in Morden, Manitoba reported the following: “After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Morden, Bob, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bob has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Manitoba had already gone wireless”.
Just makes a person proud to be from Manitoba!
