Insert "Denial" Joke Here

Pat gets a tightly-wrapped no-prize in a gold box for bringing us this update about the recent identification of Nefertiti's mummy. Nefertiti, for those who don't know, was King Tutankhamen's mother and the wife of Akhenaten, probably one of the strangest pharoahs ever to rule. He was the one who has all the really weird statues (well, the ones that survive anyway) and tried to single-handedly switch an entire country to monotheism.

King Tut's stepmom. She was more than someone's wife and someone else's stepmom. She was a very powerful person in her own right and considered one of the great beauties of all time.

Just think we have seen her image a thousand times over and now we can really see how true to life that statue was. Really fascinating stuff. I will be glued to my discovery channel on Aug 17.
