An ancient Egyptian mummy that was supposedly discovered beneath the chocolate aisle of Kwik Save in Rhyl has turned out to be a hoax.
The ‘mummy’ was discovered by shelf-stacker Tony Undergut who took his story to the local papers last week. The ‘mummy’ had been smothered in chocolate and nuts. The Kwik Save employee claimed it was the burial place of Pharaoh Roche.
But Undergut admitted that he’d made the whole thing up when challenged by his manager, Ryan Cleanwhistle. He told WalesOnCraic:
“Tony has been with us a for a few years now and he’s always been trying to make us laugh one way or another. Sadly, this Pharoah Roche ‘joke’ went down like a lead fart, especially after we took up Aisle 7 with a mini digger. We’ve suspended Tony pending further investigations and if the little shit tries to pull any more stunts like that, I’m sacking him on the spot.”
Tony’s mother, Toni, told WalesOnCraic:
“Tony’s a lonely lad. He was only trying to lift the morale of the staff there but clearly he took things too far this time. And yes, the Pharoah Roche joke was a bit crap, even by his standards.”
