A Joke About Broadband

A joke about broadband from Redesign Malaysia. Read and laugh. Because it's funny?

After having dug to a depth of 1000 meters last year, Swedish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years and cam to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 1000 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Swedes, in the weeks that followed, English scientists dug to a depth of 2000 meters and shortly after headlines in the UK read; English archaeologists have found traces of 2000 year old fibre optic cables and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high tech digital communications network a thousand years earlier than the Swedes.

One week later, Malaysian newspapers reported the following: After digging as deep as 5000 meters in padi fields in Kedah, Malaysian scientists have found absolutely nothing. They, therefore, have concluded that 5000 years ago, Malaysia's inhabitants were using wireless technology.
