This is Friday’s Folly but it’s also the truth.  Apparently, the remains of a shipwreck thought to be that of the Santa Maria, was recently found, or should I say ‘discovered’?  It is not yet conclusive but who cares? So were many of Christopher Columbus’ claims and we still believed them.  So I am believing this one too.

I heard through my grapevine that they were able to salvage a piece of equipment used to measure how far a ship travelled.  The reading on it, which could still be read, showed that Columbus barely left the coast of Spain.  In fact, further investigation was able to prove that the vessel was never actually on a voyage but used as a fishing boat.

In light of all the accusations I heard about Columbus, I gathered up all his claims and took them to Maury Povich and had him to a paternity truth test on them.  The results were astonishing!

Columbus claimed to discover the West Indies.  The lie detector determined that was a lie.  He claimed to discover America.  The lie detector determined that too was a lie.  He claimed to discover.  Yes, discover.  The new world, land, whatever, wherever.  The lie detector determined that was bullshit. (It must have been broken).  After fresh batteries were inserted, it calmly stated that that also was a lie.
