Lightbulb Mummy

The English word mummy is derived from medieval Latin mumia, a borrowing of the Persian word mūm (موم), which means "bitumen"... Because of the blackened skin, bitumen was once thought to be used extensively in ancient Egyptian embalming procedures...The Pschent was the name of the Double Crown of Ancient Egypt... The Ancient Egyptians generally referred to it as sekhemti, the Two Powerful Ones...It combined the Red Deshret Crown of Lower Egypt and the White Hedjet Crown of Upper Egypt...The most common site of a human cowlick is in the crown, but they can show up anywhere. They also sometimes appear in the front and back of the head...
