P.T. Barnum Mummy Real

Now this is an interesting devlopment:

The Egyptian mummy in his museum is for real. A pair of Quinnipiac University imaging experts, who specialize in mummies, confirmed Thursday that the mummy - Pa-Ib - was a real person. Barnum's second wife had donated the mummy to the museum in 1892. The mummy is supposedly that of an Egyptian priest who lived more than 2,500 years ago.
