British telecoms are best

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 North Yorkshire, Jack Arkwright,
a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely f***
Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Britain had already
gone wireless."

Just makes you bloody proud to be British, don't it!
