    Copper wireIt's hard to get ahead of dem cheeseheads! Dae o.k.doe by golly!frt

    After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York 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 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 a 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 Courier Hub, a local newspaper in Wisconsin,
    reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Stoughton, Wisconsin, Ole Olson, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that
    300 years ago, Wisconsin had already gone wireless."

    Atta boy Ole! You go guy! Way to show 'em dat we're not so backward as dey tink! Who said Wisconsinites are hicks?

    I have some more, one that involves the Norwegian Fire Dept, but have to dig it out. It's a hoot! I love them too, my husband's mothers folks came from Norway in 1850. So we have heard them a lot!! Never say Norsky's don't have a sense of humor! Lefse was not for just any old occasion.
