Ain't superstitious, baby.

Meet Mojo, a runaway who was finally buried 80 years after his death. Visit with the Orviss family in their spacious mausoleum. Don’t mind the whispers; there’s no reason to be superstitious. It’s just Calvert, Texas.

There's a whole website dedicated to mummy news? Daddy's not sure he likes that idea.

He was buried in 2002. There is so much more you could have done with this post.

The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia is way creepier than just one mummified teenager. Check out the impacted colon in the case, or the skeletal remains of siamese twin babies or photographs of tumors growing out of foreheads.
