    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?

    UFFDA!!!

    I got the joke from my sister who lives in Wisconsin. Ole and Lena jokes are very popular in that region.
