The name is Texas, Texas Smith and I am a fortune hunter. I’ve just courageously battled my way through deadly spikes and flesh eating beetles to reach my destination, the treasure room in a lost temple within Machu Picchu. Before me is a mountain of riches beyond my wildest dreams.

What’s this I spy? A small wooden chalice? I’ve seen Indiana Jones – this object must be of unimaginable value and disturbing the rest will undoubtedly result in my death so this is all I'll take.

Three days later...I’ve just been to an antiquities dealer – it’s worth £4.50. Damnation!
