Cemetery. Cemetery.

My mom's ashes are in a concreteorium.

I hope the mythbusters show up ... just in case.

And bring Kari.

A hive full of Martian grasshoppers.

Remember submitter, headlines are more humorous when brevity is incorporated.
As well as humour.

4 8 15 16 23 42 (etched on the surface of the object)

It's the South's super secret weapon to win the Civil War.

I can't tell you anymore but let's just say the Hunley was primarily used to search for R'lyeh.
2006-01-29 11:37:30 PM  
Awwww, they killed the headline.
2006-01-29 11:44:32 PM  
I bow to your knowledge of bizarre weapons of the civil war.

The Hunley still strikes me as one small step above hell on earth. But it's still neat-o
2006-01-29 11:48:17 PM  
One of the veterans prolly just wanted to be buried in his car.
2006-01-29 11:51:24 PM  
haven't worked on an interesting site in many months.
2006-01-29 11:54:55 PM  
Those are Chuck Norris's fillings.

That's right, Chuck Norris served and was killed in the Civil War. Once on each side.

Back with my wife in Tenesee
and one day she said to me
Virgil quick come see
there's a huge metal thing
where only corpses should be-hee.
2006-01-30 12:17:20 AM  

oh well.
2006-01-30 12:30:10 AM  
It's the Tommyknockers.
2006-01-30 12:44:58 AM  
*cue "The X-Files" theme*

/paging Mulder and Scully...
2006-01-30 12:54:38 AM  
I'd like to see a follow up on this when they uncover the mystery.
2006-01-30 01:08:00 AM  
Huh huh huh...submitter said "penetrating"...huh huh huh heh heh heh
2006-01-30 03:26:37 AM  
It's a cannon.

/saved you all RingTFA
2006-01-30 03:27:12 AM  
That would be my wang. Thanks for finding it, I've been needing a non-earthen shag.
2006-01-30 03:28:14 AM  
Mormon's other book?
2006-01-30 03:28:14 AM  
yes, old cannons burried in the ground = very scary

Oh that... it's just uh... we're farked.

2006-01-30 03:31:13 AM  

/it's a UFO! or a sasquatch! or a mecha-godzilla!
2006-01-30 03:35:17 AM  
I can't think of anything that could be buried where a cannon foundry used to be. I'm going to jump to conclusions and assume it's an alien ship designed to re-animate the corpses of the soldiers to bring about armageddon. Sweeeet.
2006-01-30 03:35:34 AM  
Wasn't this in a Nerds sequel?

I'm pretty sure it's a part of that elaborate tunnel system beneath the US/Mexican border.

/got nothin'
//just wanted to see if I could post now

"We be runnin' brother!"

"During the Civil War, the city was home to two major hospitals and the famous Noble Brothers cannon foundry."

How noble were they?
2006-01-30 03:44:57 AM  
Finally... Jimmy Hoffa and his Cadillac have been found!
2006-01-30 03:49:16 AM  
Dammit, Flash86, you beat me to the WotW reference.

/O R'lyeh?
//Ya, R'lyeh.
2006-01-30 03:49:51 AM  
wwwooooooooooo scary!
2006-01-30 03:49:57 AM  
Scary tag, why?
2006-01-30 03:56:05 AM  
My first reaction to the headline: "Why are they mystified by an object on the ground, how does an object penetrate radar, and what the fark is a radar doing underneath a Civil War cemetary?"
2006-01-30 04:01:09 AM  
Lincoln's tinfoil hat.
2006-01-30 04:01:49 AM  
I was about to ask the same question
2006-01-30 04:04:25 AM  
Well, as Meatloaf would say, two out of three aint bad.
2006-01-30 04:09:59 AM  
How, exactly, is a cannon buried in a graveyard scary?
2006-01-30 04:15:32 AM  
Whoever that chick is, she's got a farkin awesome ass.
2006-01-30 04:23:44 AM  
How is this
2006-01-30 04:26:03 AM  
...introduces you to the Exiles and their epic journey across the galaxy, from the desert planet of Kharak to their true homeworld of Hiigara.
2006-01-30 04:27:42 AM  

One of the veterans prolly just wanted to be buried in his car.

Yes, one of the Civil War veterans wanted to be buried in their car. That must be it.
2006-01-30 04:32:28 AM  
"This is fun. It's exciting. It's the kind of thing Indiana Jones movies are made of,"

So, so we have Indiana searching for the Arc of the Covenant, the Holy Grail, and now the two old, rusty, civil war cannons?

/And as far as the kids that damaged 85 monuments, if your kid does something like that, take him out and kill him. Please. Anybody that does crap like that is a worthless piece of shiat. I farking hate bastards like that. Glue-sniffing asshat tards...totally worthless.

//Not one of King's best books...
2006-01-30 04:35:04 AM  
Meh, it's probably just another penis gourd.
2006-01-30 04:36:35 AM  
buzz_kirkwood: No, but thanks for that anyway!
2006-01-30 04:37:12 AM  
They make out they don't know what it is, and say CANNONS every second sentance. F'kin Spoilers.
