Earlier tonight I was sort of watching one of the national news shows as I worked on my computer. They had a story about a new mummy that has been uncovered in Egypt. They don’t know who it is yet, but the level of decoration on the sarcophagus suggests that it was somebody very rich and important.
When they switched back to the reporters in the studio, one of them referred to the decorations as “mummy bling.” I would expect that remark out of Jay Leno, but not a national news team!
This must be a sure sign that I am squarely in “last generation” territory. 🙂
