    The massive circular structure appears to be an archaeologist's dream: a recently discovered antiquity that could reveal secrets of ancient life in the Middle East and is just waiting to be excavated.

    It's thousands of years old -- a conical, manmade behemoth weighing hundreds of tons, practically begging to be explored.

    The problem is -- it's at the bottom of the biblical Sea of Galilee. For now, at least, Israeli researchers are left stranded on dry land, wondering what finds lurk below.

    The monumental structure, made of boulders and stones with a diameter of 230 feet, emerged from a routine sonar scan in 2003. Now archaeologists are trying to raise money to allow them access to the submerged stones.

    "It's very enigmatic, it's very interesting, but the bottom line is we don't know when it's from, we don't know what it's connected to, we don't know its function," said Dani Nadel, an archaeologist at the University of Haifa who is one of several researchers studying the discovery. "We only know it is there, it is huge and it is unusual."

    Maybe it's just a sand Barr.

    It's Gomorrah. Did you ever wonder what happened in Gomorrah? The Bible never gives much detail, but I just happen to know cause I'm a mensch that way.

    Gomorrah's where Abraham's third cousin once removed, Hirschel, lived. He got visited by two goyim who showed up at his door like a couple of shnorrers looking to schmooze with him and his family. They were enjoying a nosh when a bunch of schmegeggies showed up at Hirchel's door and started kvetching about the strangers he was entertaining and insisting that they wanted to shtup them in the tukhus. Hirchel would have no part of it and said "Shtup one of my kinder if you must huck a tukhus, you mamzers.

    The Gomorrahtites said that they had their hearts set on the two machers visiting Hirschel. Before Hirschel could answer the men, his two guests stepped forward, raised their hands, and made the throng of tukhus hucking nudniks as blind eyeless bats. They then told Hirchel to quit that meshuggah shtetl and not look back lest G-d potch him the way He did the sightless schmos outside his house.

    Needless to say, Hirschel took heed and got the hell out of Gomorrah along with his family. Unfortunately, his wife decided to be a schlemiel and looked back at the city. The next thing you know the meshuggeneh is saltier than a side of belly lox. Meanwhile, G-d wipes Gomorrah off the map with a nice blend of hail and brimstone and Hirschel said, "Oy vey, that'll teach the feygelehs!"



    No need to thank me. :)
