Lost tribe of Frenchmen discovered living in cave near Puebla, MX

Lost tribe of Frenchmen discovered living in cave near Puebla, MX



(PNS reporting from PUEBLA, MEXICO) Mexican researchers are baffled by the discovery of a lost tribe of Frenchmen living in an artfully-decorated cave in the foothills of Mt. Popocatépetl in the state of Puebla. The Frenchmen, found by a group of hikers, are believed to be descended from a military patrol that went missing in 1862, during the French occupation of Mexico.

The cave was discovered when the hikers followed the distinct smell of espresso to its entrance. Upon entering, they found the walls painted with scenes of picnics and absinthe drinkers and the floors littered with empty bottles of the hallucinatory liqueur.

Through the process of cabron-dating, which involves reading the label on the bottle, it was confirmed the absinthe was from the Napoleonic Era.

“We had heard legends of Frenchmen being sighted in the area,” said hiker Jay Tencule, “but this is the first time anyone found concrete evidence of their existence.”

2. I understand they can be dangerous in their taunts.

Here's hoping the researchers tread gingerly in their contacts with the Frenchmen.
