How Did A Ship Get Under The World Trade Center?

Posted by on July 15th, 2010

Construction workers at the site where the World Trade Center once stood unearthed a ship from the 18th Century in New York City yesterday.  Crews rushed in to get as much data about the ship recorded before the heat of the sun turn it dust, as well as to ensure that worked continued at the historical site.

So did they build the WTC over a pirate’s hideaway, or did Revolutionary New Yorkers find a creative way to dispose of those darn Redcoats? Let us know your craziest theories in the comments!

    The ship is there because the mermaids that used to live in New York got angry at the Vikings and sunk the ship, then later buried the evidence so that no one found out…. that or the Dutch got mad that the English took over New Amsterdam and thought burying an English ship would be such a funny practical joke.

    Well, i think every one already knew that economists are thieves. All this really does is prove that the world stock exchange was, in fact, founded by pirates. I guess the whole “stock market scam” was so effective that they actually convinced themselves that the pirate ship in the basement was just for show.
