For sure Yuri.  And to cover up their tracks the sneaky Eurocentrics
gathered up every corn cob which ever existed in the Old World and
sent them on a boat back to the New World so that future archaeologists
would never be able to uncover their incredible deceit.  But they
didn't count on the pluckiness of a single adventurer who would hail
from the far away (in both time and space) land of Toronto.
