The good news is we’re all gonna be okay…for now. A huge coffin was unearthed in Alexandria, Egypt recently and people on the Internet (as they are wont to do) speculated on what kind of curses/demons/mummies/zombies might come pouring out of it when it was opened.

Thankfully for all of us, the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities decided to go ahead and open the 2,000-year-old tomb and it looks like we’re in the clear.

There was no treasure inside the large tomb, but the sarcophagus did contain the remains of three people that are believed to have been warriors. Also in the tomb: a whole lot of red sewage water that seeped in over the years through a crack in the side of the massive coffin.

In a very strange twist, because people are insane, an online petition has emerged calling for the keepers of the tomb to let regular folks drink the red coffin sewage water. As of this writing, more than 26,000 people have signed the petition. Okay…
