The melting glaciers of the Bolivian Andes have yielded up the mummified remains of Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. This was the major topic of interest at the University of La Paz 18th Scientific Assembly. According to Guido Trinidadolé, Professor of Forensic Archaeology, the discovery was made in the Altiplano region of Bolivia not far from Lake Titicaca.

For decades, historians have debated whether Butch and Sundance actually fled the United States and made their way to South America to resume their nefarious activities. There never was that famous "shootout" between Federales and two "gringos" that was depicted in the Newman-Redford cinema classic. Proof of identification was made comparing DNA from the mummies with known artifacts of the two archived in the Denver Wild West Museum.

The two mummies were found in a recently-exposed crevice on the eastern side of the Nevado Sajama. Much of their skin, hair and clothes was still intact and Colt .45 pistols were tucked into their boots. The fact that the two bodies were holding hands was explained by Prof. Trinidadolé by the additional discovery that Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid were not guys, but girls and not heterosexual girls, but lesbians, and that Butch wasn't really butch. Sundance was!
