Today’s Friday Funny is courtesy of Brent Tozzer. After my tour of high school students at the Michael C. Carlos Museum this morning, I stopped by the book shop to say hello to Brent, bookseller extraordinaire. With fellow docent, Pat Stone, we chatted about the wonderful mummy upstairs in the Old Kingdom exhibit.
“He’s so extraordinary!” I commented. “I never get tired of looking at him.”
“He’s featured in KMT (Egyptology) magazine,” Pat pointed out. “They’ve got some wonderful photos.”
Brent smirked slightly, as if holding in a chuckle.
“What?” I asked. “Don’t you love him him too?”
“Of course,” he said. “Burt’s great.”
“Yeah. You know. Like Burt Reynolds in that photo he took for Playgirl. That’s how the mummy is posing.”
Upon which my brain exploded:
|4,000 year old mummy.|
Yeah. And Brent, just so you know, I will never be able to UNSEE this so, um….thanks?
