With regards to the recent Beavis & Butthead post…. Beavis has now changed his mind, and said that a few of the comments on his blog were surreptitiously posted by detectorists (yeah, right). Of course at the time he seemed to like them. One commenter suggested..“The fact any shop can sell any metal detector to anyone, regardless, is an absolute travesty.” His reply, “Of course it is”.
Then finally Butthead comes to the rescue and says “But Andy, not everyone with a metal detector is damaging archaeological sites. They are used by archaeologists, meteorite hunters, gold prospectors, beach detectorists and rally token hunters, not to mention builders, plumbers and security men. Simply banning the tool is not the solution, and nobody here is suggesting such a thing”.
Apparently we can only be “beach detectorists” or “rally token hunters”….?
As for Beavis’s quick turnaround, I guess you could call it “changing course in midstream”. I’d call it “being caught with your pants down” (and when I think of these two individuals that really grosses me out)!
JOHN HOWLAND’S NEW CAMPAIGN!
My mild mannered, usually full of crap, counterpart in the UK sent along an update, and I am not sure what to make of it. Have a feeling that the Beavis and Butthead post had something to do with it…
