Ancient Aramaic Inscription Found - Paul Younan - 04-22-2004

Mesopotamia isn't called "The Cradle of Civilization" for nuthin.

...the Imperial Aramaic cuneiform text reads "Drive it like you stole it."

It appears to be sitting on top of a potter's wheel with fresh clay (of the same color) squished between the bat and the head! <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

It's a REALLY funny hoax <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

We never get credit for nuthin'

A pity, really that the picture is incomplete. Now, if only we had the other half of the tablet of this unique archeological find we might be able to properly date it. The form of transportation depicted is particularly interesting. I have, in the course of my studies, encountered this type of vehicle before. It is my experience that you can usually pinpoint the exact year of it's manufacture by merely examining the shape of the tail light. This would go a long way to dating the piece, in my opinion. I would definitely put it in the Assyrian post-industrial era. Another enigma to be solved. That's archeology for you!

I see they invented "mullets" as well.
