Early this morning a large metallic object came hurtling to Earth in the small town of Ozarkinstaw. The townsfolk all know him as Grampy Podunk, and his farm is now a scorched crater still smoking from the impact. "I woked (sic) up skeered (sic) as all git out (sic)" Grampy paused to sip from a flask, "Thing sounded like right outa the movin' pictures, whistling like a bomb 'fore (sic) it hit. Also kinda sounded like someone on a roller coaster 'yeee-hawwwww'in (sic)' Had a hang-over an' went back to sleep, tho, so I didn't rightly (sic) see the damage it'd done 'fore (sic) the gnomes got to ransackin' (sic) it and draggin' a lot of the wreckage out to their burrow. But I figger (sic) I can sell the metal for scrap, and I do believe there's an orgone accumulator in there. Dinged up a bit, but my nephew could probly (sic) git (sic) 'er workin'. Couldn't be all that differnt (sic) n' ornithopters." At this point the hillbilly lost the reporter by trying to point out the similarities between orgone accumulators and ornithopters. Scientists cannot say what the object is, since Ozarkinstaw county has outlawed the practice of scientism for the past 267 years and all scientists who enter the county are tarred and feathered. However, Astrologers in a neighboring, less willfully ignorant county, claimed to have spotted an object from space moving at improbable speeds from the direction of the constellation Canus Major, specifically the star Sirius. Also known as the Dog Star, the Sirius star was very important in a completely different backwoods culture: the egyptians. They believed that if they sucked out one's internal organs and preserved the body in an elaborate ritual that only the upper classes could afford. The soul of the "mummy" then had eternal life among the gods. In the wreckage of the space object (ship?), the reporter had seen scraps of linen, and shattered clay pots containing what could only be thousand years old internal organs, leading this reporter to a possible conclusion that this was indeed the crash landing of a mummy from space. But with no hard evidence to go on, is it safe to assume that this "space-mummy" did not survive the crash?
