Asshat.  Hope he didn't do too much damage.
Of course their provenance is all farked now, so historiographic value is nil.

This guy just wasn't brave enough.

It's the nature of the business, baby.  It's the Egyptian artifact smuggler's blues!

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: This guy just wasn't brave enough.


Nothing a little Sliquid and determination couldn't handle.

Idiot! You need to be working for Hobby Lobby to be allowed to smuggle stolen artifacts into the United States!

Anything's an artifact if you're brave enough.

In other news Hobby Lobby will not have to return even more antiquities to Egypt.

Man, surprised it took this long to get here.  Thought I was going to have to do it myself.

Butt subby did make a "anything is a didlo" joke.  So I can't blame everyone.

He should have put a "Cairo" sticker on the suitcase.

Maybe he left the receipts back at the tomb, you guys always look for the bad in people before thinking of what might have REALLY happened.  Maybe he was holding them for a friend...see, there we go, another totally plausible reason for this happening.  Maybe he is the president of the Hobby....never mind, that one's played out.

Sounds like a pyramid scheme

When I smuggle a mummy I hide it in my carrion luggage.

Nearly 4000 years old?  Get out of here with those cheap modern Middle Kingdom-made knock offs.  Find some tourist to sell that junk to bub.

You never bring all that stuff in yourself. You recruit about a half dozen others who you know but don't know each other and divide it up between the seven of you. You only bring in a little bit. You task the six others to find your guys each to help with their load. You don't know them, they don't know you. Each of them gets a cut of the loot. Then each of those guys is told to find two others. Now, you have a bunch of people, enough to each smuggle in a small amount that hopefully will each get past customs. If not every one makes it through, most should.

Make sure everyone is wearing suits. Nice and professional, so everyone has credibility with Customs. If that's not your thing, just fake it until you make it in.
