Archaeologists have discovered that an ancient Peruvian tribe living along the Pacific coast was munching on popcorn thousands of years ago.

The discovery was made last Thursday by Sir Percival Blick of the British Museum when he raped and pillaged the ancient burial grounds of the Tiki-Wiki Indians. They lived high in the Andes Mountains 10,000 years BC. Sir Percival stated that tucked beside the bones were urns of fossilized popcorn.

However, according to the famed exploiter of ancient peoples, the practice of eating popcorn appears to have died out within a short period of time. Sir Percival speculated that it was because TV, movies, and beer hadn't been invented yet.

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