AND THEY CRASHED ON EARTH WHILE TEXTING

Bizarre discovery of an '800-year-old' mobile phone could be evidence of an advanced civilisation or time travel

Using a Dodge to time travel ? Cmon. You gotta go with a Ford. I'd also like to add that that cell phone is probably easier to use than mine.

It still costs $400 to get out of the contract.

The Boffins opened for the Rutles.

I think Larry King wants his phone back.

If you'd like to hear our Customer Service menu, please press "TUL".

MTB, what number do you press for English?

It was olde English at the time, so probably "FOURE".


SO that's where "Can you hear me now?" and
"You have no service" came from?

"hey. look, I've got five bars, and I plan to visit them all"

--Alien astronaut

the phone was dropped by an ancient alien who had hidden it in uranus

Proof that in 800 years, Verizon still has not improved their coverage?

"Come on, Klaatu! You've been on hold with customer service for decades now! You've been pawned. Let's blast 'em with our death ray!"

"Advanced civilisation"? *Pffffffft.* Phone doesn't even have a touch screen.

If the Star reports it, it must be true.

As for the time travel Dodge - it worked! We will all see this guy three years from now, when he gets out.

I think Brits read the Daily Star when the other tabloids have just gotten too down to earth for them.

I'm very proud that we got all the way to comment #10 before hitting a Uranus joke.

Re the Dodge: he got both death and taxes.

and that's not a mobile, it's a portable.

if this had happened on a week day and someone had actually been in one of those cubicles,

we could have sold a few more caskets.

blankie, you must have been a blast in gym class getting your buddies to count off in Roman numerals.
"EYE!"
"EYE EYE!"
"EYE EYE EYE!"
"EYE VEE!"
"VEE!"

Next time, try a De Lorean. Or an old British police phone box. Anything except a car.
