"We're all very excited about this find," said Sasha Vogel, the archeologist in charge of the dig. "It's not every day you uncover one of the prized possessions of the MAD FIGS." A recent study placed the mug's value at close to $935 billion.
"It's a stroke of luck that we were able to recognize the mug when we came across it," Sasha explained. "Because its appearance is known to change almost at random, we never know what it's going to look like. But we are now 100% certain that the find is authentic."
Sources indicate that the mug has been returned to its rightful owner, local resident Scott Dogg. While the exact methods for determining ownership are understood by very few, it seems that the next person in line to receive the artifact is Jacob Eikns, another of the MAD FIGS.
Scientists all over the world are anxious to study the mug's mysterious properties, and the first project scheduled involves a new high-tech photography process that will capture images of the mug in its entirety. Initial results of the undertaking are available to the public online at: http://www.geocities.com/madfigs/birthday.html
