This from Alistair Beaton, a regular correspondent:

 I enjoy the jokes you publish in your blog and thought this one would appeal to you.

‘After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, Canadian scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

‘Not to be outdone by their neighbours, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story published in the New York Times:
“American archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the Canadians”.

‘One week later, the British authorities reported the following:
“After digging as deep as 30 feet in East-Fife, Shuggy Gilchrist, a self-taught archaeologist from Methil Hill, reported that he found absolutely f*** all.
Shug has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Scotland had already gone wireless.”

Just makes you bl**dy proud to be a Jock, eh?’
