An archaeologist doing research in the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is strolling back from a break when he notices a beautiful docent giving a tour there. He waits till after her lecture and then says hi.
“Not interested,” she sniffs. “I don’t like science types.”
“But you work in the Temple of Dendur,” says the researcher, “and I heard your shpiel; you know everything about Egyptian art, mummies, burial rites — ”
“That’s just my job,” the woman says. “It means nothing to me.”
“But you’re here all day,” presses the archaeologist. “You have to find the process of these ancient kings being preserved and displayed fascinating, no?”
“Look,” says the woman. “I’m sure you’re a nice guy. But we have nothing in common.”
“On the contrary,” says the man, pointing to a sarcophagus. “We have Tut In Common.”
