Well, doesn’t it seem pretty suspicious that, of all the people who opened King Tut’s tomb in 1922, not a single one of them is still alive?
Seriously, though. The press in the 1920s made a big deal of a supposed “mummy’s curse,” claiming that it had taken 21 victims by 1935.
However, in order to come up with that figure, they had to add in a whole lot of people who had nothing to do with the tomb.
Journalists added in relatives, acquaintances, employees, or even (in one case) a relative of an employee to give credence to the alleged curse.
Considering the ever-widening pool of friends, relatives, and acquaintances, it’s actually surprising that there weren’t more.
