Setting a new standard in archaeological announcements

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi appears to have announced the discovery of 30 Phoenician tombs dated circa 300BC on his personal estate in Sardinia.

This would be interesting stuff under any circumstances, but what makes it really interesting is Berlusconi is said to have made the announcement while in bed with a hooker. They do things differently in Italy.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the next dig to make a major discovery can do to top this for a press release.

Only in Europe. That is the only place where such a thing could ever happen.

Now, why was this hooker taping this conversation in the first place?

Here in America, we do sting operations and the poor John never gets any. There, they find ancient artefacts while the John gets his rocks off. Priceless, Gary.

Ready to be Italian now.
