Thousands want to drink putrid ‘mummy juice’

A petition on Change.org is seeking to let thousands of signers drink from the foul, red liquid mixture found in a recently discovered and opened 2,000-year-old black sarcophagus in Egypt.

Antiquities officials in the county state a crack in the lining of the coffin allowed sewage to slowly leak into the sarcophagus over the centuries.

Inside the coffin were three skeletons bobbing about the water.

The petition to drink the vile smelling liquid was started by a person going by the name of “innes Mck,” whose real name is Innes McKendrick of Surrey, England.

His rationale for wanting to drink the liquid?

“We need to drink the red liquid from the cursed dark sarcophagus in the form of some sort of carbonated energy drink so we can assume its powers and finally die.”

Egyptian authorities have pointedly stressed there is no curse associated with the sarcophagus. And, so far, they don’t seem inclined to allow people to drink the coffin’s liquid.

Microbiologists warn the liquid is probably a pool of bacteria, viruses and mutated organisms.

Another person wrote on the petition they want to drink the liquid because, “I’m thirsty.”

This is not a tiny handful of people.

So far, the petition has drawn over 17,500 signatures of folks who supposedly are interested in gulping down a bit of the organic brew.

You can read the petition and comments from the signers here.
