According to New Tang Dynasty Television, a pot of 2,400 year old soup was found buried among ruins in Xi’an, China. Big deal.
If these archaeologists are impressed with a measly pot of soup, I can unearth more exciting moldy leftovers in my fridge. They might be older, too. There’s blue cheese that’s supposed to be yellow, a container of organic yogurt that expired in September, wilted kale and a take-out box with petrified Peking ravoli from the Wok Inn.
If that’s not impressive enough, then I invite the crew from China to excavate my freezer where, just today, I discovered a frozen mass, entombed in a zip lock bag. Carbon-dating is on going to determine the contents which may or may not be the carcass from the Thanksgiving turkey. The 2002 Thanksgiving turkey.
