...a ground-breaking invention.
The shovel was a ground-breaking invention.
This is a pun. The humor hinges on the fact that the shovel is a tool often used to move dirt, which breaks the ground up into pieces, and "ground breaking" also means innovative.
The invention of the shovel probably was innovative, so this joke is true for both of those meanings.
This joke might also be classified as a dad joke.
