The Boy King is back. Disco Tut!

‘LUXOR, Egypt (AP) – King Tut’s buck-toothed face was unveiled Sunday for the first time in public – more than 3,000 years after the youngest and most famous pharaoh to rule ancient Egypt was shrouded in linen and buried in his golden underground tomb.’

If I were Tut, I’d come back from the dead and bitch-slap the reporter who called me buck-toothed.

Anyway, in honor of the Egyptian who launched a hundred ripoffs of Boris Karloff and gave Brendan Fraser a slew of residual income . . . . .




  1. With all that money, you’d think his folks woulda sprung for braces, wouldn’t you?

  2. Buck toothed may be harsh, but he hasn’t aged well has he? You would have thought that the royal family could at least have applied some moisturiser. He looks nearly as bad as our Charlie.

    That’s what happens when you eat Paula Deen’s cooking!

  10. Quelle tristesse – il etait riche … mais il est mort sans un smile parceque il n’est pas de chocolat our manger

    If only he could have sampled the Cake displayed so magnificently in Aerchie’s place …… America is contributing such a blessing to post-Columbus humanity

  11. Got a condo made of stone-na!
    It is hard to comprehend why the embalmers yanked the brains out through the nose during mummification..
    maybe they knew something about the afterlife that we don’t…
    such as where you are goin’ pal you won’t be needin’ this.. YOINK!

    Gee, I wonder if that’s true for either Heaven or Hell? Hmm?

    How the hell are ya Fronty?

  16. I just showed this video to Nog – I couldn’t believe he’d never seen it before. Wasn’t this from Saturday Night Live?

    Anyhow, I’m reminded of another tv show I saw ages ago with Steve tap dancing with Gregory Hines and being totally blown away. Off to look for it now on YouTube.
