Mummies are most commonly associated with Egypt, but they can also be found in a variety of other locations across the world. Mummies from South America have been discovered in a number of nations, including Argentina, Peru, and Bolivia. Many mummies discovered in this region have been organically mummified by the environment, and others, like the Llullaillaco infants, were even sacrificed. As you see, certainly not something to joke about during Halloween.
Mummies were not always intended to be such famous film monsters. Their involvement in Hollywood is far more complicated, with the eerie silver screen adaptations having little to do with their ancient Egyptian source. But it was Hollywood that made mummies into monsters, whether it was Universal Pictures’ The Mummy in 1932 or the genre’s resurrection courtesy of 1999’s hit The Mummy and its sequels. Now come Halloween, mummies have joined the likes of the Draculas and Frankensteins on the list of classic Halloween monsters.

The KGB team follows.

Do mummies enjoy being mummies?
An archaeologist was excavating in the desert near Jerusalem when he discovered a crude sarcophagus. When he opened it, he discovered a fully intact mummy. Further study convinced him that he needed to have this mummy examined by professionals, so he called a museum in Jerusalem and informed the curator that he had just discovered a mummy that was around 3500 years old and had died of a heart attack. Despite the curator’s reservations, the remains were transferred to the museum and meticulously examined.
Days later, the archaeologist received a phone call from the curator, who wanted to congratulate him on the magnificent mummy and learn how he precisely dated the remains and determined the cause of death without using x-rays or any of the museum’s highly technological gear. “Well, I noticed he had a piece of parchment in his hand,” the archaeologist explained.
