Thousands sign petition to let people drink red liquid found inside sarcophagus
The 2,000-year-old Egyptian coffin was found earlier this month in Alexandria
Tongue-in-cheek petition created last week and now has over 11,000 signatures
A petition to let people drink from a red liquid found inside a 2,000-year-old Egyptian sarcophagus has received thousands of signatures.
Speculations about the large black granite sarcophagus quickly started after its opening in the coastal city of Alexandria earlier this month.
Yet Egypt's Antiquities Ministry says the liquid is neither 'juice for mummies that contains an elixir of life' nor is it red mercury but only sewage water.
It also says the find doesn't belong to any ancient rulers and the remains are undergoing restorations to reveal more.
The tongue-in-cheek petition was created last week and now has over 11,000 signatures.
Some suggest it belongs to the ancient Greek ruler, Alexander the Great.
Others warned of 'the curse' opening it would unleash. These reports were dismissed by the ministry.
The petition encouraged people that they needed to 'drink the red liquid from the cursed dark sarcophagus' in order to 'assume its powers'.
People were quick to comment, with one writing: 'We deserve the power of the Egyptian elite.'

People have been watching too many Marvel comic book movies.
Most likely or in some other variation.
And so it begins...
I see a new comic character coming. The Rot, a rotten mummy man who kills you with his breath.
Maybe it is the fluid of tana leaves. hitlery sure could use some...and a clothing designer. By the way...hitlery isn’t President and never will be. LOL.
If it is sewage, might I toast, “Bottoms up!”.
I hope they choose wisely........
What kind of dingbats would want to drink liquid that is thousands of years old? God only knows what kind of bacteria is in it.
“...believing it is the elixir of life while experts say it is just sewage water...”
Ummm.... “Elixir of life”... Found in a TOMB with a DEAD guy... Yeah... guess that elixer worked REALLY WELL for the stiff.
Well, hey... let them. That right there could yield a couple thousand entertaining Darwin Awards for next year.
Pass the popcorn.
Maybe they didn’t notice, but the guy in the sarcophagus is dead.
