Just last week, researchers opened a mysterious 2,000-year old sarcophagus to find three skeletons, thought to be a family. One appeared to have been hit in the head with an arrow or spear.
The mysterious black sarcophagus in Alexandria, Egypt has been opened. It contains 3 mummies, thought to be a family.— AJ+ (@ajplus) July 19, 2018

Also inside the sarcophagus was a bunch of reddish-brown liquid. While most people believe that it's some kind of raw sewage, others disagree. And, because 2018 is sooooo extra, there is a change.org petition signed by nearly 20,000 people that want to drink the "mummy juice".
While I sincerely hope it's a joke, this year is so weird that WHO KNOWS. Would it be too crazy to think there's some strange cult of people that thinks the sarcophagus juice would give them some kind of magical powers or everlasting life?

What people don't realize about the sarcophagus mummy juice is that the juice is *recent*...from a nearby sewage pipe from the modern era. I don't know why people would want to drink someone's liquified feces from two years ago, but then again I don't want to drink mummy juice.— Jeff B. (@EsotericCD) July 21, 2018
If I drink the bone juice from the opened sarcophagus I will either be imbued with the power of a god or contract a horrible illness that will, in fact, kill me.— Sadie Boyd (@Wonder_Phoenix) July 20, 2018
I say that's a win/win situation.
what does it say about me that there’s nothing you could say about the sarcophagus juice that would make me not want to see someone drink it— hob’s joke device wife (@mama_tuna) July 21, 2018
Anyway, if you, for whatever reason, want to sign this petition that's sure to not accomplish anything, here it is. Mummy Juice Smoothies for everyone!
