New Indiana Jones Movie to Offer Accurate Archaeology

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Instead of fighting Nazis, Indy will spend a good portion of the movie working to accumulate sufficient grants for his field excavations.

The dig it’s self will be the climax of the movie, bringing Indy to a site on the border of Argentina and Brazil. When contacted for further comment, George Lucas had this to say:

“We’re looking for realism here, so the ‘crystal skull’ is just a metaphor for information, anything more would be foolish. What you should really have in mind is ceramics. When people think of Indian Jones we want them to think of pot sherds.”


I actually believed it when I read the first couple of paragraphs. Not because it’s plausible or even remotely likely, but just because I am that gullible.

Naturally to spring it on y’all I had to wait a day, because nobody else was likely to buy it on April 1st.
