Mummies Achieve Equal Rights
Ancient Aristocrats that lurched and moaned their way through the mist last Spring marching for Equal Rights can now sit back and know that their marching was not in vain. The new Proctor Act has passed into law insuring all Mummies will be treated with the same respect they give--
‘This law is great news for Ancient Aristocrats,’ said Nicodemus Hayden, Professor of Ancient Aristocratic Studies at Carivell University who was quoted last Spring on the Mummy Marches, ‘this is absolutely the first time it is against the law to discriminate against Ancient Aristocrats on grounds of Dress, Habits, Smell & General Culture A definite giant leap forward for all of us—’
Most ecstatic perhaps of all is Danny Proctor whose law suit against Liberty Shoes last Spring acted like a catalyst for involving all Mummies. Although, the law suit was settled out of court, Sinfai’s City Council was quick to draw up the bill which would profoundly prohibit discrimination against Mummies.
But not everyone’s convinced.
‘This bill passed so hurriedly and is so full of holes that it will hardly make a difference said Mummy Mayor of Deuth, Istok Koburi, ‘perhaps amendments can be made but for now I’m pessimistic.’
Pessimism was not present in Mummy communities, however. The only thing on display was good cheer and many parties that had their doors open to All.
Liberty shoes also released a statement extending its warm Congratulations to the Ancient Aristocrats.
