蝸牛與兔子奇譚 A Strange Tale of Snails and Rabbits
In 2020, scientists discovered an unusual historical object in northern England. It is a small silver figure of a snail shell resting on top of a goat’ s back. On the top of the shell, a knight is seated with his hands pressed together like he ’ s praying. At first, experts thought it was created to present a serious message. However, after examining it a bit closer, they concluded that it was designed to make people laugh. In other words, they probably discovered an ancient meme.
