A famous Israeli archaeologist was digging in the Negev when he discovered a mummy – a highly unusual occurrence.
He immediately called the head of the Israel museum in Jerusalem.
“I’ve just discovered a 3,000 year old mummy who died of heart failure!”
“Bring him in. We’ll have him examined.”
A week later, the archaeologist was called in.
“You were right about the mummy’s age and his cause of death. How on earth did you know?”
“My friend, I have 35 years’ experience. And he was holding a parchment that said 10,000 shekels on Goliath.”
