Took him 12 feet down to realize
Is this a post on The Onion? There’s no way someone could be that dim. He actually dug twelve feet into the ground in search of metal only to realize that his metal detector was picking up the steel on his boots? Do you guys realize how long it takes to dig one foot into the ground, let alone twelve?!
But why stop there? Why not just keep digging until you reach China? There might be some old pirate treasure 13 feet below the surface. Sadly, we’ll never know what happened to this man or how they pulled themselves out of such a deep hole.
