No, silly.  I was there at the beginning.

There were these huge aliens with hard hats dragging the stone slabs all over the place.  One of them - the foreman I think - approached me with a clipboard and pointed at the slabs and said, "Hey, buddy, you gonna sign for all this?"

I was kind of shocked.  "Um," I said, "I don't think I have the authority to sign for something like this."

The alien foreman just sighed and tipped his hat back on his head a bit.  "Look...if I can't get someone to sign for these, we're just gonna leave 'em here like this."

They're not druids, they're Daily Mail-reading gas fitters who throw on a costume once a year in the hope that someone will find them mystical enough to have sex with them

Now I know why they call them Dirty Druids. Always wondered.

What people fail to understand is that Stonehenge is merely a monument to a larger circle of rocks.

So did you sing for them?

And Stonehenge isn't even "druidy".  The last bit was finished at least a thousand years before the Celts even came to the Isles.  It would be like Baptists showing up in Giza and nattering on about "We built that!" and "It's our mystical heritage!" while dryhumping the Great Pyramid.

Years ago at my old 1st floor apartment in Chicago I was siting by my front window, reading, when I noticed some middle aged couple sitting in the car parked in front of my building. They were having lunch. Nothing odd about that, seen it a few times before. But then the guy rolls down his window and just dumps all his trash out on the grass! I got up, grabbed my keys, went outside, picked up the trash, opened his car door and threw on his lap and yelled at him for being an asshole. Seems that I was more than a lot angry because I somehow actually scared the guy off. He started up the car and drove off. 

Yeah, I cannot abide litterers.

That sounds like the story my dad told me from back in the 70s, when he was in the Air Force he had a badge looking type of thing, and he was driving behind a car, and all of a sudden a bunch of fast food stuff was thrown out of the side of it.   He motioned them to pull over, and "flashed" his badge to make them think he had some sort of authority, and made this old couple drive back and pick up all the stuff they threw out the window.

My first encounter with a faerie midget wizard was at the Ring of Brodgar and I wasn't even on mushrooms. He told me of the dangers of any Lethal Weapon movie sequels.

Trash +time = archeology

/As a teenager I once took a hammer and chisel and carved some Pictures on a rock in my parents yard. 15 years later my mom brought up the Heiroglphics she found.

/And I had to tell her they are not as ancient as she thought.

A lot of the comments are saying that the Druids aren't responsible for the construction of Stonehenge, and that's just blatantly incorrect.I've done a massive amount of scholarly research into this subject over the decades and frankly I know my stuff. You see, in ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history, there lived a strange race of people: the Druids.  No one knows who they were, or what they were doing.  But their legacy remains, hewn into the living rock of Stonehenge.

Look - I don't get many opportunities to drag out my old Stonehenge joke.  Don't ruin it for me.  ;-)

Unless rocks were a bunch lighter back then that took some effort.

Seems like  that would have been for something people really cared about.

Stonehenge was just the scaffolding.

Project got cancelled and they left it.

Sorry, no Druids for at least 1500 years after Stonehenge was built.

You can't blame it on the Druids, you're reading too much Roman propaganda.

Little known factoid:  The Stone circles of Stone Henge were put up by music fans who were bored because they did not have beach balls to bounce around. This is how they passed the down time between acts.

The reason why this factoid is not widely known is that it contains no truth.

It's not a cold war meme, just an old meme. But it is still funny to me, dammit.

It was built sporadically over at least 1500 years in at least three distinct waves.  There was precious farkall to do for fun at the time, so it was probably at least a little bit for variety.
