The Hilarious Eddie Izzard Pokes Fun At Archaeology

Close to three hours ago, I finished my last final. I can't even tell you how relieved I am. I was actually at the  point my brain was starting to shut to down and I didn't the know the difference between Neanderthals and Homo Erectus. One had a big nasal aperture. One left Africa close to 1.8 million years ago. One has a bad reputation for pulling his ladies across the dirt, all while swinging a club in his other hand. Ok, so the last part may not be true, but I needed a laugh.

So here I am, calmly sitting in the library after my exams, buying some last minute gifts on Amazon, and planning my trip to the Smokey's next week. Low and behold, I found myself on YouTube looking for humorous archaeology videos. Why? Well, sometimes archaeology can be mundane. Yes, I said it. I didn't want to write about lost civilizations or another discovery found after a year of digging. I wanted fun. I wanted laughter. I needed a break! Awwwww

Archaeologists will dig for three weeks at a time, turning up maybe one millimeter of top soil that they dated to two weeks ago. Yes, sometimes it's that slow and unexciting. Leave it to Eddie Izzard to give archaeologists a reason to shake their head in agreement. Why do we does this? Because we are nuts that's why!

Just a warning! I couldn't stop laughing at this video and I was in the library with hundreds of people studying for their finals. Opps! lol
