A team of archaeologists were excavating in Israel when they came upon a cave. Written across the wall of the cave were some symbols. It was considered a unique find and the writings were said to be at least three thousand years old!
The piece of stone was removed, brought to the museum, and archaeologists from around the world came to study the ancient symbols. They held a huge meeting after months of conferences to discuss the meaning of the markings.
The President of the society pointed at the first drawing and said: ”The first symbol on the left looks like a woman. We can judge that it was family oriented and held women in high esteem. You can also tell they were intelligent, as the next symbol resembles a donkey, so, they were smart enough to have animals help them till the soil. The next drawing looks like a shovel of some sort, which means they even had tools to help them.
Even further proof of their high intelligence is the fish which means that if a famine had hit the earth, whereby the food didn’t grow, they would take to the sea for food. The last symbol appears to be the Star of David which means they were evidently Hebrews.”
The audience applauded enthusiastically, but a little old man stood up in the back of the room and said, ”Idiots, Hebrew is read from right to left. It says: ”Holy Mackerel, Dig The Ass On That Woman!”
Jake and Josh, 2 archaeologists, found some ancient stones in a field outside an old English village. There were 8 of them, all lined up in a row.
It was 3 hours before it would be dark so they decided to start working from the back stone to the front. They figured by the time they got to the front stone, it would be dark and they could jump in their jeep and return the next day.
So they worked quickly and diligently, measuring the stones, taking small samples and copying the primitive drawings etched on some. When they got to the stone in front, they found that the base of it was crumbling and the ground around it was soft. Before they could take precautions, the ground gave way, the stone tipped on it’s side and fell on top of Jake.
Josh ran to the village for help. When the rescue team arrived back, they didn’t see Jake anywhere in sight.
Where’s your friend? ”, one of them asked.
”Where, over there?”
”There, there.... he’s buried under that there Head Stone.”
