Absolutely best headline ever on Topix. The actual story was bound to be anticlimactic, even if said dog mummy had been found on Mars (I forget, was it found on Mars?). Do you suppose those same bloodsucking parasites were found on the headless slaves in the topless Norse guy's grave? Also, they never explained how those slaves got around without heads/eyes, etc. Were they Roomba slaves? I mean imagine the hapless headless slave carrying a tray with flagons of mead. Just a disaster waiting to happen, right? Same with the urinal slave, the so-called piss boy. Oof. The secrets of the ancients are locked in eternity.
