A team of archaeologists excavating in Israel came upon a cave.
Written across the cave wall were the following symbols, in this order of appearance from left to right: A woman, a donkey, a shovel, a fish, and a Star of David.
It was considered a unique find, and the writings were said to be at least three thousand years old. The piece of stone was removed, brought to the museum, and archaeologists from around the world came to study the ancient symbols.
They held a huge meeting after months of conferences to discuss the meaning of the markings.
The president of the society summarized findings and pointed at the first symbol. "This looks like a woman. We can judge that this race was family oriented and held women in high esteem. You can also tell they were intelligent, as the next symbol resembles a donkey; so, they were smart enough to have animals help them till the soil. The next drawing looks like a shovel of some sort, which means they even had tools to help them. Even further proof of their high intelligence is the fish, which means that if a famine had hit the earth and food didn't grow, they would take to the sea for food. The last symbol appears to be the Star of David, which means they were evidently Hebrews."
The audience applauded enthusiastically.
Finally, a wizened little old man stood up in the back of the room and said, "Idiots! Hebrew is read from right to left. It says, 'Holy mackerel! Dig the ass on that woman!'
