The sarcophagus. Are you thirsty for the contents?

The sarcophagus. Are you thirsty for the contents?

Anyone need a drink? Earlier this month, in Alexandria, Egypt around the time they were closing off certain beaches and designating others as Tourist-Only, a 30-ton, black (descriptive, not racist) sarcophagus was opened.

If you are superstitious or have seen Brendan Fraser’s The Mummy eight times, you might think that the genius idea stems from just opening the sarcophagus and courting possible curses/plagues.

Not quite. Our PD Staff feels that the genius part comes in from the petition signed by 20,000 people begging to drink the liquid enclosed of the said sarcophagus.

The Change.org petition.

The Change.org petition.

Three skeletons sitting in red liquid were found inside, and it is that red liquid that the signers of the Change.org petition want to chug.

Move Over Kool-Aid

Now, while scientists attached to the project claim that the red liquid is just sewage that had seeped into the sarcophagus over time, those wanting a sip believe it could have healing powers.

Brilliant, throwback a bottle of sarcophagus juice and live-forever. Surely, the math on that checks out.
