Just about a month ago, British scientists thought that they had found the reason an Egyptian Statue in the museum was moving after being left alone, apparently on it's own.

After careful study, it was determined that it was not due to an ancient curse or the spirit of the mummy inside as one newspaper reported it (It's a statue, not a mummy, Dummy).

"They said that it was due to the vibrations that came from visitors walking by that caused it to move", stated one museum curator. "But now, when we unlock the door in the morning it has turned almost 180 degrees. It looks like it just doesn't want to face the public. That something more interesting is going on behind it."

The scientists have returned but have stated that they just do not know how the 3800-year-old does the turns.

"It's sort of spooky isn't it?, stated one scientist to our reporter.

After the meeting was over, our reporter heard a "Pssssst!" and went to look. There was a couple still standing by.

"Don't let the curators or scientists know, but we are the ones responsible. That's because we have been slipping inside the museum after hours and that's the largest area behind the statue that we can find."

The male told this reporter that he once worked at the museum and made a copy of the keys.

"Barbara and I have been married for three weeks now but we don't want our parents to know, since she is still a few weeks under age. The statue has been doing it because WE have been doing it back there and jarring the thing. Give us another 2-3 weeks before you report this and Barb will be of age."

Time is up. You got the story.

This is Barb Landon for $tar$.
