Here a Mummy; There a Mummy

It’s beginning to feel like I’m writing Ripley’s Believe It or Not. This will not become a trend. However, considering the post below about Baby John, I just must pass this along. It’s another mummy, and this one was local. And, beyond that, it’s quite likely that the remains are those of John Wilkes Booth – and the mummy was stored for a time at a midtown Memphis home. Leapin’ likelihoods!

The report’s not from a tabloid, but from The Memphis Flyer which Mike reads for local music and entertainment info. With mummies popping up everywhere, I’m beginning to feel left out. We’d better check the attic.

Read the whole story at the following link. Mike thinks it sounds credible. Judge for yourself.
