King Tut's treasures this summer, and it's only gonna cost you around $30 to get your chance to ogle the late pharoah's eye-popping array of gold jewelry. Some people are complaining about the high price
, but you can count me among those who will gladly plunk down my money for the chance to see this stuff. After all, it's either that, or fly to Egypt to see the artifacts in situ
(which would cost roughly 100 times what LACMA will be charging). And let's face it, the boy king has always been all about the money, as Steve Martin famously sang
"Now, if I'd known
they'd line up just to see him,
I'd trade in all my money
And bought me a museum.
The only bummer? The mummy itself ain't making the trip, which kinda takes a little of the whole "Curse of King Tut's Tomb"
thrill out of it. Still: King Tut!
Organizers aren't wasting any time separating mummy crazy Angelenos from their money. Tickets are already available online
, believe it or not.
