Two weeks ago, archaeologists in Egypt found a massive black granite sarcophagus in Alexandria, untouched for 2,000 years - and fleet-footed rumour quickly got to work.
Could it contain the remains of ancient Greek leader Alexander the Great, or (less appealingly) a deadly curse?
According to experts who have now unsealed it, it's a no to both.
Instead, it revealed three skeletons and red-brown sewage water, which gave off an unbearable stench.
Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities had appointed a committee of archaeologists to open the relic, which was unearthed at a construction site.
According to Egyptian news outlet El-Watan, they initially lifted the lid of the tomb by just 5cm (2 inches) before the pungent odour forced them from the inspection scene entirely. They later prised it open with help from Egyptian military engineers.

Pick a Democrat politician and you have an “unbearable stench”.
Pick a leftist member of the media and you have an even worse “unbearable stench”.
Put them together and you have “StenchAgeddon”.
My father worked on gas-masks during WW2 (CWS). I wonder if I have any leftover in the basement. Otherwise, I want the clothespin concession.
... wait what was the line in the original Mummy, not the faggy Tom Cruise movie.....
Tomb of Cthulhu?
Smells like Democrats!
And there’s someone poking it with a stick. Jeez, how many years of a university education and graduate study does it take to go poking 2,000 year old stuff with a stick?
That didn’t age Well!
