A mysterious sarcophagus dating to 2000-years ago was discovered from the Egyptian city of Alexandria and was recently opened to apparently avoid a curse. Archaeologists three decomposed mummies inside the coffin with foul sludge. Along with the decomposing bones was also a reddish brown sewage water inside the tomb and now people want to drink the red-coloured liquid.

It sounds just as bizarre but one of the users actually wants to drink the red coloured juice and he has even launched a petition to let him slurp the decomposed contents of the coffin. Innes McKendrick, a video game producer has addressed the petition to the King of Skeletons, Egypt'. He wrote, "We need to drink the red liquid from the cursed dark sarcophagus in the form of some sort of carbonated energy drink so we can assume its powers and finally die." Well, to join his bizarreness are 87 others who have signed in his support.

Take a look at the petition that is being shared on social media platforms:

Innes posted the petition on his social media and people too are helping him to pass it on. Like many of us would be thinking one user did question him, why did he want to do so? And Innes replied, "Don’t want it to go to waste." Scientists discovered the ancient sarcophagus ancient this month and people said it was the long lost tomb of Alexander the Great. The 2.65m-long tomb is largest ever found in the region.

People were also concerned about the 'Curse of the pharaohs.' Aware of all the curses that people were talking about the Secretary-General of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mostafa Waziri had said, "The sarcophagus has been opened, but we have not been hit by a curse. We've opened it and, thank God, the world has not fallen into darkness." There was also no note or anything about who these bodies belonged to. But leaving all the evilness and curses aside, people now want to drink the red coloured sewage water!
