Morse vs SMS

They didn't mention that the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia held an almost identical contest earlier this month, but the other night the Tonight Show held a showdown between a Morse coder and "the fastest text messager in the country" to see who could transmit the message "I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance" in the shortest amount of time.
