    One time I was 2,301 years old.

    May the Lord be with you.

    I’d be scared like crazy if I saw a random walrus on my local beach.

    Archaeologists… It was a soup. The bones were pierced with nails because they were tied up to keep them in the pot while serving. The coin is a tip that fell in there by accident. The names are those of the kitchen crew. My story makes a lot more sense! Curses!.. And they get paid for that!!

    Wally’s alarm clock froze, then Wally froze, then they both thawed, then Wally thaw a puddy tat. ~ Tweety Bird, still swingin’.

    Take care, may ancient compost shoveler Daniel “Hip Boots” O’Lookyord be with you, and gesundheit.

    Wally came for a beer, but he stayed for the dancing.

    I’d say that curse worked. Those 30 people are all dead and stiff as a board.

    The pot was a trash can; but the archaeologists were coming up on a grant review so they tried their best to make every finding spectacular.

    I guess the 30 people are now dead, so the curse was successful

    Boy, that stinky plant story leaves many details unexplained. Curious minds want details of how flies pollinate the damn thing; why would the smell of rotting insects be more attractive than rotting vertebrates (I seem to see one hecka lot of flies on dead animals); wouldn’t dead flies provide protein (they do on Venus Fly Traps); lastly, why do I care?

    I wonder if they flew Wally home or is he now sitting in an Irish zoo?

    I don’t think Wally is going to find a north bound iceberg, so he’s in for a long swim home.

    I can think of a few names to retry that jug experiment! About 10 names should do it!

    Wally probably slept off a heavy tv/beer hangover and found himself on a beach full of like minded leprechauns.

    Flowers like that make the perfect gift for a divorce settlement.

    Wonder what else that pot was used for.

    “Dismembered chicken bones”—-Is there any other way to get chicken bones without dismembering the chicken? Or maybe I’m wrong and the bones are what are dismembered. Never saw a dismembered bone before. I learn something new every day.

    I think the “Cursed Pot” did it’s job. All those people are dead.

    researchers – always researchers. not know-it-all but definitely guess-it-all – didn’t archeologists make up the ‘link’ between monkeys and Homosapien from a tooth found in the ground? just asking

    plants is plants, sautee them in butter and garlic and you won’t mind the stench

    if a walrus falls asleep and floats south on an iceberg does he become a penguin?(let me see, 2500 miles at 45 mph – kinda a long slumber) I would guess Wally was shanghaied and thrown off because he ate too much – makes some sense too) 2 maybes and 1 pu
