Whale Fossil Found in Kitchen Counter

I read this headline on National Geographic and thought, “ do I get one?”.

I imagined someone doing a little kitchen DIY; the local Home Depot shows up to install a stone counter top, then: WOOHOO.....fossils! In my kitchen!

But the title is misleading. It was actually the factory cutting the kitchen counter tops that found the fossils in the stone, then called in some archaeologists.

Oh well. I'll have to settle for the shells and trilobites in my stone row.
