A team of Archeologists came upon a cave.
Written on the wall of the cave, from left to right were the following symbols :
A woman 2. A Donkey 3. A Shovel 4. A Fish 5. A Star of David
They decided that this was a unique find and the writings were more than three thousands years old. They chopped out the piece of stone and had it brought to the museum where archeologists from all over the world came to study the ancient symbols.
They held a huge meeting after months of conferences to discuss what they could agree upon as the meaning of the markings.
The President of their society stood up and pointed at the first drawing and said :
“This look like a woman. We can judge that this race was family oriented and held women in high esteem.
You can also tell that they were intelligent, as the next symbol resembles a donkey. So, they were smart enough to have animals help them till the soil.
The next drawing looks like a shovel of some sort, which means they even had tools to help them.
Even further truth of their high intelligence is the fish, which means that if a famine hit the earth, whereby their crops didn’t grow, they would take to the sea for food.
The last symbol appears to be the Star of David which means they were evidently Hebrews. “
The audience applauded enthusiastically and the President smiled and said, “ I’m glad to see that you are all in the full agreement with our interpretations.”
Suddenly a little old man stood up in the back of the room and said, “ I object to very word.
The explanation of what the writings says is quite simple. First of all, everyone knows that Hebrews don’t read from left to write .. ….
Now, look again .. .. it now says :
“Holy Mackerel, Dig the Ass on the Woman. “
