The Staggering Priestess

Long time reader, first time poster, and I am sorry for my first post to be so frivolous... but cheer up, Lance! If the wave of history that has been appearing on our horizon for some time now makes it to shore, you may soon find yourself with a chance to rob tombs and fight mummies in real life, in the apocalyptic America of the 21st century!


I love The Mummy! :) A hunky archaeologist, a sexy librarian, people debating the proper reading of hieroglyphics during a fight scene, cornball antics - it's a perfect movie.

I guess I love it so much I had to post twice! Argh.

Flowers for Algernon?

Uncle Merlin

Yes yes hUnky archeologists & Heiroglyphs what could be better! Bring them on!

I bet you watched Return of the Mummy???

Wish I was there for Pizza & Wings, they make good wings!


PS I think my favorite line belongs to the Blonde "we'll start a family and continue to live like grown-ups" PragmaticPennsylvanian!

Ken Houghton

The blonde presumed it was possible to "live like grownups" in Charlton-Heston-as-Ape-Man's hometown. I trust she will pardon the rest of the audience if we fail to suspend our disbelief at that.

Of course, I suspect the movie was Stuart Little, but that's only because Mike Schilling took my first guess.


Wait, so you love The Mummy? but you're lukewarm about Raiders of the Lost Ark?

Or was it just the ending of the latter you didn't like?



I enjoyed the Mummy movies. I love Raiders. I'm not keen on melting Nazis.


Thanks for reading and welcome into the comment threads where there is no subject too frivolous to be treated seriously. Fighting mummies is serious business. I'm afraid that all the 21st Century mummies I'll have to fight will be wearing the tattered remains of business suits and coming at me to get me to refinance my house at subprime rates. All I have to do to get them to go away is offer them a no strings attached federal bailout. Where's the challenge in that?
