Great Times in Egypt Written Down
The daily scoop on the latest happenings in Egypt
A strange, deadly virus has appeared in Red Egypt. A farmer reported that some townsfolk were bitten by lions. This sickness had wiped out approximately 70 villagers and spread to other towns around the Nile River. The symptoms were told to be: coughing, sneezing, constant itching, vomiting, headaches, and if severe enough death. Stay inside and away from others with the disease. Wash your crops before you eat them and try not to make contact with wild animals.

Interview with Hatshepsut
"Hatshepsut, is it hard to be a Pharaoh when you’re a woman?"
"Thank you for asking it has been a blast and I think people are really getting to understand that women can do the same thing as men.”
“Wow how inspiring. Do you think that you can keep going?”
“Most definitely. It is a hard job but people are now respecting me as who I am. I am known for wearing a beard because I am pharoah and shall be respected for who I am.”
“How did you get the new fruit in town?”
“Well it was quite simple it was just a little persuading and more trading because we have so much gold people always want to trade with us.”
“Well this is all the time we have, but thank you so very much for cooperating.”
Letters from our Readers
"Ugh, Hatshepsut is so stupid. Everyone knows Egypt can't have a female Pharaoh. She's probably gonna let us get conquered and burned to the ground. So listen up pharaoh fake, don't screw up Egypt. Why don't you just hand the crown over to Thutmose. He'll probably make a better ruler than you'll ever be. So why don't you just give up before it's too late, you banana-stealing monster."

"Oh my goddess! Finally, Egypt has a female pharaoh! What a time to be alive in! Girls can do anything! Long live Queen Hatshepsut!"
-Fangurl777 age 5
"Sure having a female pharaoh is strange, but what's even stranger is that Thutmose has the skill to be pharaoh. Instead of learning the ways of a pharaoh, you just through kick him out of the kingdom, hand him a bow and some arrows and let him conquer our allies just to expand our already big enough land. Give the boy the crown already before he gets killed in war, then there won't be anyone after Hatshepsut. Knock some sense into yourself, Egypt!" -Lonelymerchent21 age 50
