Big stone heads on a mountain top

Archaeologists investigating a lost civilisation have uncovered four big stone heads on a mountain top in a land mass thousands of miles west of England.

One of them told us: "These heads tell us a lot about the ancient people who built them. Their size indicates that they were a lot bigger than we are. The fact that they are not attached to necks suggest that the ancient people did not have bodies or limbs but were just great big heads that floated around."

We spoke to local people, who might be descendants of the so-called Ancient Ones, but could not understand much of what they said. We noticed that many of them were fat and appeared stupid. Curiously, they all had bodies and limbs.

The archaeologists said: "It is possible that the stone heads represented the leaders of this obviously once great civilisation. So far we have not been able to deduce what destroyed them, though we have not ruled out fatness and stupidity."

Meanwhile, another theory is that the big stone heads are not actually sculptures at all but are real people encased in stone, much like the residents of the ancient city of Pompeii. "This mountain", said Professor Nerdling, "could be an extinct volcano and these 4 men might have been standing right under it when it erupted."
