Gambling Mummy

- — An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel and came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of a prestigious natural-history museum.        

      "I've just discovered a 3,000 year-old mummy of a man who died of heart failure!" the excited scientist exclaimed.        

      To which the curator replied, "Bring him in. We'll check it out."        

      A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. "You were right about the mummy's age and cause of death. How in the world did you know?"        

      "Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said, '10,000 Shekels on Goliath'."
