Researchers in the tomb of Ptooie Punte, Mayor of Memphis Eygpt, discovered that the ancient mummy mayor was packing cheese!
Indeed, that cheese contains contaminants that may have killed the pharoah and many in his family. "This cheese causes extreme ummm gas," said one researcher, "it may have caused them to explode, that is, if they didn't allow it to 'escape'."
"The bacteria comes from the Brucella bacteria, a livestock disease which can spread to humans," said the researcher. "After 300 years, it was surprising to find it in such wonderful condition, after all this time."
Researchers X-rayed the Ptooie Punte mummy and discovered it has an enlarged sphincter. "Physicians familiar with people who are rather gassy, say that their anuses tend to look like this. It's likely the Ptooie household was a....ahem...a fragrant one."
The scientists later "cut" the cheese to take a sample to the laboratory where rats were allowed to sample it. "They blew up like balloons," said the one of the scientists, on condition of anonymity.
Military experts are said to already be interested in the cheese to use as a new weapon. A world with cheese and crackers instead of nuclear warheads.
