Study Finds Having “Walk Like An Egyptian” Stuck In Your Head Better Than Actually Walking Like An Egyptian

Ancient Egyptian #1: “Boy, it’s hot out here.”
Ancient Egyptian #2: “Tell me about it. What are you up to today?”
#1: “Building a pyramid. You?”
#2: “Same.”
#1: “Hey, did you go to Sami’s burial ceremony?”
#2: “No, I missed it. My son got bit by a rattlesnake again.”
#1: “Bummer. It was alright. But the sarcophagus turned out to be too small.”
#2: “What did you do?”
#1 “Hauled some more rocks, made it bigger."
#2: “Right.”
#1: “Say, that’s a nasty cut on your leg there.”
#2: “Yeah, got this falling off a sphinx.”
#1: “You don’t say. You wrapped some meat on it?”
#2: “Yup, got it all wrapped up in meat. Don’t want the Pharaoh thinking I’m slacking."
#1: “Gotcha. Well, I’ve got to go haul some more rocks. Will you be at the sacrifice tonight? I think it’s Rami this time.”
#2: “Yeah, I’ll be there. Poor guy.”
#1: “Hey, at least he invented math, right?”
#2: “True.”

Hey Dan,

I've never commented before (I'm one of those scary lurker types) but I love you like cops love donuts (in a strictly platonic, we don't know each other but I think you write brilliantly funny posts) type of way. However, I noticed a few weeks ago that you changed the settings on your RSS feeds and now the messages are clipped in my google reader. As if that wasn't insult enough, you then added some type of gay ass flash drive to your site that locks up my computer every time I visit.

Basically I'm here asking (I won't say begging, even though I considered it) you to please fix your feed settings so I can actually read your posts in their entirety. Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to read half a paragraph and not know what happens next? No, you probably don't, but I'll tell you, it's frustrating.

Will you fix it?

We already know that things were tougher for the Egyptians, because they didn't have puppy's antics to comfort them.

Seriously, what the hell happened to your rss feeds and when are you going to fix them?

I am in Egypt, and while out walking, have had an Egyptian (a merchant, or course) start singing "Walk like an Egyptian" to me, and trying to get me to do that Egyptian walk. I'm not making this up. So now, when I get "Walk like an Egyptian" stuck in my head, I am also plagued by that particular walk, and that Egyptian. A vicious, evil circle!
