Prehistoric lovers found locked in eternal embrace - CNN.com

“It’s rare for two young people to die at the same time, and that makes us want to know why and who they were, but it will be very difficult to find out.”

Really?  It will be hard to figure out who they were?  Maybe because they were buried 5000 years ago.  I mean, it’s not like there’s some old guy you can just go ask.

Seriously, this sounds like an elaborate pre-Valentine’s Day hoax.  Right near the place where “Romeo and Juliet” was set, a week before Valentine’s Day, we find the remains of two young lovers?  Someone better check and make sure the skeleton doesn’t say “Hallmark” on it.
