After 35 Years, France Figured Out Why Garfield Phones Keep Washing Ashore

For 35 years a tiny coastal town in France has had a mystery

Garfield phones have been washing ashore - by the thousands.

Finally, they have figured out why

From the BBC:

The beach-cleaning teams had long suspected that a lost shipping container - perhaps blown overboard - had regurgitated its precious orange cargo. But they had never been able to find it.

The media attention on the new campaign, however, drew the eye of a local farmer who remembered the firsttéléphone Garfieldappearing after a storm in the early 1980s, when he was a young man.

He also knew the location of the container - in a secluded sea cave accessible only at low tide.
