King Tut Was a Club-Footed Product of Incest

Researchers at Italy’s awesomely named Institute for Mummies and the Iceman have revealed a number of findings from their recent ‘virtual autopsy’ of the most famous mummy in the world, the Pharaoh Tutankhamun. An intensive series of scans has revealed the boy-king to have had buck teeth, wide hips, and a club foot. Additionally, DNA testing has shown that his parents were sibling. Yikes!
