    In this situation I would say tragedy rather than humor. Sad for all concerned.

    I think it's satire, the other articles on that website appear to be anyways.

    An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel and came upon a casket containing a mummy, a rather rare occurrence in Israel, to say the least. After examining it, he called Abe, the curator of the Israel museum in Jerusalem.
    "I've just discovered a 3,000 year old mummy of a man who died of heart failure!" the excited scientist exclaimed.
    Abe replied, "Bring him in. We'll check it out."
    A week later, the amazed Abe called the archaeologist. "You were right about both the mummy's age and cause of death. How in the world did you know?"
    "Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said, '10,000 Shekels on Goliath'."

    I considered that too, but it's possible he placed the bet some time before the battle, and then only got word of it later.

    Maybe I'm overthinking this.

    I guess if you're going to mummify a fellow, you might also end up moving his body in the general direction of Egypt. So there, it makes perfect sense.

    Ah! So obvious. How did I miss it.
