Digging up History

Examining the excavation for a new subway line, Toronto scientists found traces of copper wire dating back over 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their urban ancestors already had a telephone network, many years ago.
Not to be outdone by the Ontarians, in the weeks that followed, a Vancouver archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet.  Shortly after, a story published in the Vancouver Morning Herald read: “BC archaeologists, finding traces of 130-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network, much earlier than the Torontonians”.
One week later, the Halifax Chronicle Herald, reported the following: “After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Dominion, Cape Breton, Billy ‘Pickle Arse’ McNeil, a self-taught archaeologist, found absolutely fuck all. Pickle Arse has therefore concluded that 150 years ago, Cape Breton had already gone wireless.”
Makes ya bloody proud to be a Nova Scotian. Brings a tear to the eye!
