The Legend of Mummies

It’s time to take a trip to Egypt and explore the tombs of the pyramids… we’re going to look into the legend of mummies. Now mummies aren't any reason to get scared... they may be ugly but they are slow and old. They have been decaying for hundreds… no wait, even thousands of years, so if you ever encounter a mummy, one quick Kung Fu kick will probably send them into oblivion.


Making A Mummy

Don't Get CaughtDon't Get Caught

Ancient Egyptians created mummies because they believed in life after death. So the kings and queens like King Tut and Cleopatra made sure that their bodies were preserved after they died. Here’s how they made mummies:


  • All internal organs were taken out except for the heart
  • The body is cleaned with oils and spices
  • The body is salted with natron
  • The salt dries the body of all it’s fluids (blood, saliva, sweat etc.)
  • Fingernails were tied on to prevent falling off
  • The body is stuffed with sawdust or linen
  • Faces were painted in resin and given cool masks
  • They wrapped the bodies into many layers of linen bandages
  • The body is finally placed a stone coffin called a sarcophagus
  • The very rich people were placed into private tombs never to be disturbed
  • The whole process took 60-70 days and cost a small fortune of money

King Tut Curse

Leave Him Alone!Leave Him Alone!

Now it’s true that mummies are slow and weak but the scary thing about a mummy is there is a curse that follows anyone that comes in contact with one. The curse was recently discovered in 1923 when a Indiana Jones-type archeologist dug his way into King Tut’s Tomb in Egypt. That week he died a mysterious death after getting a high fever and chills. Well that’s what he gets for disturbing a mummy… they were buried in tombs so that they could be left alone... GAD!


Pharaoh Party in the Pyramids

Pyramid PerfectPyramid Perfect

Did you know that the pyramids were built as the graves for the Kings and Pharaohs of Egypt. There are 50 royal pyramids that have survived thousands of years as the tombs and burial grounds for these mummies. The Egyptians believed that if their King was mummified and protected in the pyramid, he would live forever! Now that's one expensive tombstone!

We women are strong but we are not interested in showing it. Instead, we waste our time on outfits and makeup. We shouldn't do this because the world is a dangerous place and we may make the wrong people look at us. We will be happy at first, but soon we will realize our mistake and grow more unfriendly. We should fight, fight till the end. There are a few things that we need to change and I think we should totally change them. We should show how brave we are. We should prove to the world that we can handle everything. We can fight. And if you don't want to, forget it because you're just a coward. Leav it to the people who want to make things better for you. I will  fight. I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I WILL DO WHATEVER I CAN. I may not be good at everything, but that doesn't mean that I can't fight.

Duh. Nine year olds can be on this site, but Dear Dish It has frequently covered stories on some very graphic content. This site has always tried to service different age groups, but it's just impossible to do so.  What they really need to do is have a regular site for people who have aged out. Maybe a "Kidzworld Alumni" section.
