The World's Oldest Ireland??!?

Or was he the world's oldest punk rock star?

The bodies of two prehistoric men were recently found in a peat bog in Ireland. Because of the bacterial condition of the bog, the two ancients were remarkably well preserved.

They were also full of surprises. For one thing, the duo apparently consisted of a short, wealthy man and his bodyguard. The reason is that, while the "bodyguard" was a 6'6" tall monster of a man, his much shorter companion was very stylishly dressed...right down to the imported French resin he used as hair gel to set his hair in a style reminiscent of a Mohawk. Apparently he wanted to make himself look taller, or at least less short.

Also surprising (or not) is the fact that the pair were both murdered. The "bodyguard" apparently went down fighting, but he failed to protect his dapper companion, who got his head bashed in. there a 102nd use for a dead preppie?

I read on the BBC site that they may have been ritual sacrafices. Not that it matters much when you end up dead.

Having Irish blood, it ocurred to me that what preserved them was not the peat bog, but the Guiness that was served 2000 years ago.

I'll drink to that.

Ritual sacrifice?

Either that or just a bunch of revolting peasants. Yuk!

"Say, you 'ave a nice bog here. Be a shame if anything "happened" to it."

"Yeah, things break, don't they?"

Maybe the dead guy was a "Real Estate" agent selling swampland.

It was the brothers, Pete and Repeat.

Pete fell in the peat bog. Who was left?
