Tutankhamun 'absolutely useless at flossing': Howard Carter

Cairo, Egypt - (Associated Mess): Egyptologists probing a recent spate of grave-robbing in the Valley of the Kings claim to have found the tombs of three royal dentists whose funeral epitaphs inscribed as a hieroglyphic curse warned against the dangers of Pharaonic gum disease.

The news confirms the opinions of renowned 1930s British grave-robbing archaeologist Howard Carter who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun by identifying royal dental records held by the Egyptian Department of Antiquities.

And laboratory tests on the recently discovered sarcophagi have suggested that the Pharaohs may have become extinct after ignoring professional local advice to floss because ancient Greek advisers branded flossing as a silly superstitious habit invented by demented neighbouring Phoenecians.

The dentists' tombs will form part of a new exhibit at Cairo Museum Dental School early next year.
