Indiana Funny....

As you may or may not know I live in Indiana - actually most of my family does so every once in a while I get funny e-mails from people about Indiana.  Yesterday my Mom (who also lives in Indiana about 5 miles away) sent me this...  It was too funny not to share!  Enjoy :)

News Flash - Copper Wire Found....

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of New York City, New York scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They 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 Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly after, a story in the LA Times read:   "California archaeologists report a finding of 200 year old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers."

One week later, a local newspaper in La Porte, IN. reported the following:   "After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Fish Lake, Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.  Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Indiana had already gone wireless".

Just makes a person proud to be from Indiana

LOL...who said we're just a bunch of farmers?


  1. That's too funny Roni ~ I love it! I am going to share it with my Mom who is from the mid west. I know she will love it too!

  2. I always appreciate your sharing of techniques...but especially loved the Indiana joke---Lived there for 20 years-consider myself a Hoosier by proxy-wish we were back there!

  3. I loved this! I'm a Midwesterner too, and love corn!!!
