Proud to Be From Jersey (part 1)

A huge thank you to my mother for this email, that I, in all good conscience as a native New Jersian, must pass along.

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York archeologists 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 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 Jersey Journal, a local newspaper in New Jersey, reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 30 feet in his back yard, Vinny 'Bada Bing' Manziano, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Vinny has, therefore, concluded that 300 years ago, New Jersey had already gone wireless."

Just makes me proud to be from New Jersey.

So proud, in fact, that if you have a Jersey laughable, send it to my email: ariazink at yahoo dot com with NJ in the subject line. If you have a site or blog, please be sure to mention it in the email, so I can give you a shout out AND some linky love to boot! Registered & Protected
