    Two irish men are going down the street, one digs a hole the second fills it in. They carry on down the street and again one digs a hole and the second fills it in.

    A passer by is bemused by this and goes over to the Irish men and asks them "What on earth is going on?". One of the Irishmen replies saying,

    "Our mate who plants the trees is off ill today."

    NEWSFLASH !!
    After digging to a depth of 100m last year, English scientists found traces of copper wiring dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network one thousand years ago.

    So as not to be outdone, in the weeks that followed, Scottish scientists dug 200m, and headlines in the Scottish newspapers read:-
    "Scots scientists have found traces of 2000 year old optical fibres, and have concluded that their ancestors already had advanced high-tech digital telephones 1000 years earlier than the English."

    One week later, the Irish press reported the following:- "After digging as deep as 5 miles, Irish scientists have found absolutely nothing. They have concluded that 5000 years ago, their ancestors were already using mobile phones."
