Grandma's House: German Boy Finds Mummy in Attic
the rest at Der Spiegel link above
I look like that when I wake up in the morning....
Before my first cup of coffee.....:sigh:
2000-year-old Egyptian skeleton found by boy in German attic turns out to be a hoax and made out of PLASTIC. (Daily Mail)
I'll bet it was his grandfather.
I always wanted to find some cool creepy stuff in an attic when I was a child. Still do come to think of it.
I definitely FEEL like a mummy when I get up in the morning.
My first thought was it could be grandpa, lol, at least I am not alone.
But it seems grandpa is plastic, so must have been for a party and then got stashed away. A bit of a lavish party I'd say, but why else have a plastic mummy in your attic, along with a separate mask and canopic jar?
I do hope the lad grows up to be a world renowned Egyptologist, that way a very clean, and very modern sarcophogus and it's mummy contents will never fool us again.
That is a fun find, but I have to admit I think it is a hoax. There's no way there could be a huge box with a sarcophagus 'hauled down' from an attic by 3 people including an elderly woman and a child. Those things are made of solid stone, right? Also, a box that big would never go unexplored in any attic of mine. How could the family not know it was there?
