image for Potty shard lends evidence to stories of Biblical King David
The ancient artefact looks like an early forerunner of the fabled desert mobile lavatory, above

Jerusalem - (Grateful Dead Sea Scrolls Mess): A 3,000 year-old scrap of potty engraved with King David's name may be the vital piece of empirical proof that the Old Testament monarch really did exist.

And just like the fabled Rosetta Stone the ancient Hebrew inscription also bears instructions in Aramaic, Greek, Coptic and Egyptian language scripts (hieroglyphic and Demotic) for the boy King's slaves to empty the nocturnal bladder-relief vessel immediately after use, rinse it out with rose-water and guard against impostor use.

Archaeologists deciphered the five lines after studying Rosetta Stone translation techniques first laid down by French scholar, philologist, and orientalist Jean-François Champollion.

"We think this discovery deserves a Nobel Piss Prize," Prof Yosef Garfinkel,lead archaeologist in the excavation team from Jerusalem's Hebrew University said today.
