Together forever

Archaeologists in Italy have discovered a couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, hugging each other -- and they really are hugging.

Elena Menotti, who led the dig which found the couple, said she believes that the two are almost certainly a man and a woman. However, that needs to be confirmed. She also assumes that they died young, because their teeth were mostly intact and not worn down.

In my scientific opinion, the fact that they were hugging after all this time, means the guy always put the cap back on the toothpaste.

I was reading this earlier, and it said that they were found in Verona, Italy...Verona! As in 'Romeo & Juliet'! Coincidence? I think not...
