It’s Good To Be King
No. It is not Tom Petty. At one time, some might have envied this young man. Imagine ascending to the throne with all the power in the world at your fingertips. Riding around in chariots with the young girls throwing flowers at his feet, he must have been sitting at the top of the Pyramid of life, right? Probably not. He could never climb that high with his cane.
The envy of everyone in the desert is none other than King Tutankhamun. British scientists performing a “virtual autopsy” report that His Majesty was not a chic magnate. He actually had a few problems most likely caused by the brother-sister relationship between his parents. The Pharaoh was thought for centuries to have died in a chariot crash at age nineteen. He most likely never rode in one.
Despite his feminized features, enlarged breasts, buck teeth, and a club foot, Gwyneth Paltrow was quoted as saying, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” Tut, Tut.
