Comic #745

1 Haken: So, with two archaeologists, we have no excuse now for not finding die orichalcum. {as Erwin and Dr Smith pack up the picnic}
2 Prof. Jones: You forget, Haken, both my father and myself are also archaeologists, not just Junior.
3 Haken: I count you Amerikaner Joneses all as only one third each!
3 Monty: Hey! That's not fair!
4 Prof. Jones: Indeed! I'm one. Pop's at least a half. And Junior three eighths.

2014-03-17 Rerun commentary: That makes the Joneses a total of at least one and seven-eighths of an archaeologist.

I was careful to have Professor Jones state that both Pop and Monty were more than a third of an archaeologist each, but not much more than a third in the case of Monty. Three eighths is a mere 1/24 more than a third.

A twenty-fourth of an archaeologist is roughly Howard Carter's left foot, from about the middle of the shin down.
