Tomb It May Concern

Give Me A Ring, Ming

Archeologists in China are baffled after finding a tiny Swiss watch in a 400-year-old tomb. The watch ring was discovered as archeologists were making a documentary with two journalists from Shangsi town. Local experts say they are confused as they believe the tomb had been undisturbed since it was created during the Ming dynasty 400 years ago.

FOOTNOTE: Keeping watch.

Well! That's going to be a problem for them. Wonder how they plan on explaining it away.

Cheers!

Very interesting. I can't imagine how they will explain this. I wonder how old the watch is and when it might have been droppede/placed there... before or after the Revolution?

There's always a snoop, in every dynasty, Ming or otherwise! My only question is was it like the Timex and took a licking but kept on ticking?

Hmmm. I hadn't thought of looking for my missing watch in an ancient archeological site.

The solution is obvious - it was aliens, of course.

I don't find this shocking. I'm probably not ever going to get a good gift until I'm dead...

I think the solution is obvious. It certainly belong to someone's Mummy!

A gift from Marco Polo, perhaps?

I vote for time travel. Or aliens.

Moannie said...

Of course, time travel! Though sounds a bit too dainty for Dr.Who.

Casdok said...

I thought Dr Who too!!

Akelamalu said...

Well that's a mystery, I wonder if they'll solve it?

Pesky Timelords!

Hmmm. Either -
1. - They are not the first there.
2. - The tomb is not 400 years old.

Time will tell... ;0)

Time travel!

Perhaps *they* invented Swiss watch/rings!!!!
More likely that a modern person snooped around & dropped it.

I think they should just swiss it aside and forget about it.

Well, 'tis obvious isn't it? Proof positive Dr. Who and time travel exits, just as I've been telling you all along..
