    Caption Contest 7/27/06 (archaeology edition)

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    How the Battle of Quedesh was really decided - in the cage!!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out
    You put your right foot in and you shake it all about
    You do the Uruk Nippur and you turn yourself around
    That's what Ur's all about
    The purpose of life is a life of purpose

    The first practical joke in recorded history dates back to the age of pharos. Here it is remembered in hieroglyphs. The old lard on the muffin trick. It even enraged Tutankhamen himself.

    There was celebration in San Francisco as the origin of Gay Pride was discovered. On a related note the Sumerian translation of "fabulous" was also unearthed.
