"Ooh, I can't wait to go in the pyramid," said an excited Mimi. "It's just like Vegas."

"Rather you than me," said Horace, "Gives me the creeps."

"Munsen Tours group, follow me." The guy in the safari suit pointed with his baton with a hand on the end.

"Oh, boy," Mimi was thrilled by the hieroglyphs, "What does it mean?"

"High God Ra I bow to you." Explained the guide. The group moved through a narrow tunnel and entered a large chamber.

"What does it mean?" Mimi asked enthusiastically.

"It is a poem. It exalts the King." They moved on to another chamber. A mask of the dead King was surrounded by a crown of laurel and another inscription.

"What does ..."

"...it mean? Here lie the Great King Imotep." The guy was getting exasperated with Mimi. Each time a different area and the same question. In the last chamber was a wooden door, above which was an inscription.

"What does it mean?"

"It means Way Out. Thank you for coming but don't come again."
