image for New Cameron documentary to reveal Holy Grail's burial secrets
James Cameron will film the excavations which will flatten this site

Rome - (Rotters): Tomb of Jesus documentary maker James Cameron has been commissioned to film excavations for the Holy Grail - the wine goblet allegedly used by Jesus at the Last Supper - which an Italian archaeologist claims is buried under the 6th century Basilica of San Lorenzo Fuori le Mura in Rome.

Italian trophy hunter Alfredo Barbagallo says that a vision of Our lady of Fatima told him that a chamber under the Basilica is the location of the secret treasure trove.

He has commissioned Cameron "because of his astonishing reputation" to record the excavations of the Roman site next month which the Hystery Channel will sponsor for $25 million.

Not everybody is happy however with the arrangement.

British Museum sources have consistently warned that the Holy Grail mythology belongs to the genre that includes unicorns, fairies, little green men and UFOs.

"If Cameron falls for this one then he's an even bigger tosser than archaeology previously suspected," a curatorial source said today.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
