An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert and came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of a prestigious museum.
“I’ve just found a 3,000 year old mummy,” said the archaeologist. “It’s a man who died of heart failure.”
“Bring it in,” said the curator. “We’ll check it out.”
A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. “You were exactly right about the mummy’s age and cause of death,” he said. “How in the world did you know?”
“Easy,” the archaeologist replied. “He was holding a piece of papyrus that said ‘10,000 shekels on Goliath.’”
