YES, Wohapotep! (sniffle)He will be missed. He wore his fake goatee so elegantly. The court often praised Pharaoh Yebu for it! May he live forever.
Oh, that too. I do feel badly for the fellow, kicking the bucket and all.
Well, what else would be tragic at a funeral, the lack of hors d'oeuvres?
Hm, that too. But the tragic I was thinking of is all that gold doomed to eternal solitude in a stuffy pyramid.
(rolling eyes) You and gold.
Shepstut, you wound me! My interest in precious metals is strictly altruistic! I have relentlessly studied the ebb and flow of the commodities market and currency exchange, just as the priests study the nile.
May it flow forever.
Yes, yes, My point is that my meticulous calculations have brought me to the startling conclusion that each time a Pharaoh dies--
May they live forever.
but they don't--that's the point. Pharaoh Yebu just died. Why else would all these people be watching a depressing parade on a hot day like this? And would you quit saying that.
Oh keep your wig on, it's just figure of speech. You were saying?
I was saying that every time a pharaoh moves on... to his happy... hoping ground, he takes all his gold with him, siphoning it off the market and sapping the economy!
So? What does that mean?
The value of gold skyrockets, deflating the currency supply and throwing prices in the ditch. I have a plan.
I resent that. I'm going to loot his pyramid.
Oh yeah, and I'm going to be queen of england.
No really. Here's the plan.
