Most random lede ever

    This might be the most random first sentence from a news story I’ve ever read:

    “Seventeen lost pyramids are believed to have been found in Egypt by a team of space archaeologists from Alabama.”


    Space archaeologists from Alabama sounds like a bad sci-fi movie, or a bad porno.

    True. Good band name. But given the amount of NASA stuff in Huntsville, this isn't surprising.

    Any truth to the rumor that a group of space archaeologists from Auburn poisoned the pyramids?

    Oh, and those images that "show up buildings underground." Really? The phrase "show up" as a replacement for reveal? Was this translated from Italian?

    Disagree. Weirdest lede started with "Eisenhower was in a pickle, and not one of those sweet gherkins either."
