Archeologists have found a smaller version of Stonehenge about a mile from the larger circle of rocks in Wiltshire, England, the BBC is reporting.

Dubbed “Bluehenge,” the site has no rocks. But scientists say that, based on holes in the earth, 27 gigantic stones once formed a circle there — probably a mini-Stonehenge. Remnant bits of rock indicate the stones were blue.


At first, I thought the archeologists had stumbled upon a old stage prop used by the rock group Spinal Tap.  You know, the “Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf.”

The Druids are believed to have created Stonehenge, perhaps as a time-measuring device or some sort of monument to a deity.  I suspect that their economy was tanking, and the Druids built Stonehenge as a public works project.

“Hey, Charlie. Why are we moving these big old stones from Wales all the way to Wilshire?”

“To maintain full employment during the economic downturn, Harry. Don’t you ever read the papers?”

“What’s paper, Charlie?”
