Scandinavian Humour


Recommended Posts

After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Norwegian 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 Norwegians, in the weeks that followed, Swedish scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after headlines in the Dagens Nyheter newspapers read: "Swedish archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the Norwegians."

One week later, Kainuun Sanomat, a Finnish newspaper, reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in potato fields near Ristijärvi, Pekka Heikkinen, a self taught archeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Pekka has, therefore, concluded that 300 years ago Finns were already using wireless."
