Time Travel clock at the Oasis Bar & Grille

Initially discovered in a film image of a man who appeared to be using a cell phone, additional discoveries were made in the 1928 Chaplin film that raise further suspicion of actual time travel having occurred.

As one scene of the movie shows Charlie Chaplin strolling down a city street, three men can be seen clearly across the street, standing in front of The Oasis Bar & Grille holding what appears to be laptop bags, cell phones and one IPad.

One man was seen removing a pork pie hat and swapping it for a fedora, another was seen with a moustache far larger that was common for the period, and a third was seen wearing a "Cantona 7" shirt, again not in line with the fashion of the day.

Drawing immediate similarities and connection to three writers who work for an internationally known and progressive satirical news source, film analysts demanded interviews with the men known only as "Skoob, Colonel Juan and Jaggedone". Refusing the interview, filmographers were left wanting, though continued their research at the local London Oasis Bar & Grille. Whilst enjoying a Jalapeno Lager, one film analyst noticed one man (who was later identified as Morse), drinking three shots of Crème de Menthe in succession, turning around three times, pounding on the cooper top bar three times while yelling "Some Like it Hot". The man quickly disappeared.

Making the connection to the movie title, the film historians reviewed the 1959 hit with Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe, only to find the strangely dressed man from the bar, following Marilyn Monroe around several scenes like a lost puppy.

No word on if the man known as Morse, ever returned to the year 2010. He appeared to be quite happy in the film.

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