One morning as I was getting out of bed, I decided that I would try to find the core of the earth.
First I needed about 800 shovels so I rang my friend and told him to come over that evening with all the shovels he could find. Meanwhile, I set to work on the plans. We were going to dig the hole in my back garden and it was going to be a square metre wide.
When my friend finally arrived, I wasn’t as happy as I thought I’d be.
“Was that really the only one you could find?” I said angrily.
…Now 30 years later I’ve still only managed to get 12 meters deep… Even with the help of 3 diggers.
