Hebrew is Read from Right to Left

A team of archeologist are excavating in Israel when they stumble across a cave with the symbols of a woman, a donkey, a shovel, a fish, and the Star of David on a wall.

The head archeologist looks hard at the drawings and proclaims that he has figured out the meaning. He points to the first drawing and says, "The woman indicates that these people were family oriented and held women in high esteem. The second drawing, the donkey, indicates that these people were smart enough to use animals to till the soil. The shovel indicates that they were able to forge tools. The fish indicates that they were great fisherman. The last symbol, the Star of David, indicates that it was the Hebrew that left us this message to decypher.

All the archeologists nodded their head in agreement, except for one. He raised his hand and said, "Sorry to correct you, sir. But Hebrew is read from right to left. This actually says, "Holy Mackerel! Dig the Ass on that Chick!"
