Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 38)

Memorial Day here in Pensacola starts the liminal week for the kids -- the time between when the school year ends and when summer camp begins.  So I had a "staycation" entertaining them all week.  On Friday, we went to the Exploreum science museum in Mobile and saw the IMAX movie Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs.  It's pretty old (2007), so you can watch it on YouTube, but here's a screenshot of the part that made me laugh out loud in the theatre:

"Yo, what's up with that rib cage?" "Dude, the prop people don't understand cartilage." "Lulz."

If you want to see the hilariously bad skeleton part in full, check out this link.

For what it's worth, well, it wasn't worth seeing this movie in IMAX.  I thought it would have way more mummies and way more experts talking about what mummies can tell us.  But it had one mummy.  Had I known before I went in that it was a decade old, I would have passed on seeing it.
