He was “bar coded”! Easier for the aliens to monitor than asking questions like, “Which one are you?”

Michael Jackson isn’t that well preserved.

How do they know he had wavy hair? I like the line about it being apparent that he killed his own food. Unless there’s an ancient supermarket we didn’t know about!

As a matter of fact, scientists have discovered ancient “food stores”. They were said to be called 9 to 4s. Apparently pretty strong unions 4000 years ago, huh?

Poor Ötzi, dead and gone.
Left me here to sing this song.
Pretty little girl with a red dress on.
Poor Ötzi dead and gone.

:’) I’m a bit surprised there’s no new theory about his demise, as there usually is every year. ;’D

His hair is wavy. ;’) It just doesn’t show up in the pictures. He was carrying a bit of food I think, in a bag, and hunting equipment. Also was wearing a fur, and it wasn’t fake. ;’)

That fur he was wearing was made from rat pelts, so he was probably eating from the Nutria system.

According to recent research Otzi was killed by one of Capone’s ancestors.

So far, he was in an ambush, but the coldness of the Alps was more than he bargained for.

The theory at that point was that he was able to flee after he was shot, but that the wound itself was not fatal. It was the cold.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I'm just a caveman. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: "Did little demons get inside and type it?" I don't know! My primitive mind can't grasp these concepts. But there is one thing I do know - when a man like my client slips and falls on a sidewalk in front of a public library, then he is entitled to no less than two million in compensatory damages, and two million in punitive damages. Thank you.
