I've always thought what people would think of us in a few thousand years and how much they'd probably misunderstand - much like I think we do now with the ancients. I love the black and white sketches, they lend a cool dynamic to the story. Short book and very quick read.
One person’s hilarious is another’s silly and contrived. I was truly looking forward to an interesting exploration of mistaken conclusions based on a serious and intellectual foundation and found instead ridiculous assumptions by an uneducated imbecile. Even suspending disbelief, I found this a major disappointment.
The year is 4022 and the ancient country of Usa has been buried under many feet of debris from the 1985 catastrophe. Now amateur archeologist, Howard Carson, has stumbled on an ancient burial chamber guarded with the sign "Do Not Disturb". Both hilarious and thought-provoking. (Parodies the discovery of Troy somewhat.)
Delightful spoof of a ponderously self-important archaeological dig. In the year 4022, an amateur archeologist discovers the remains of a late-20th-century motel and proceeds to misinterpret every single item found within.
