Spotted around town: Anubis, the Egyptian god of the afterlife

Earlier today, we told you about our top five favorite ridiculous King Tut tie-ins, one of which was moving Anubis, the jackal-headed Egyptian death-god, to Dick's Sporting Goods Park. But we were wrong. Anubis didn't get moved; Anubis moves when he wants, wherever he wants -- and he moves some interesting places. We at Westword dug through our archives and those of other news outlets, taking a second look at some famous photos. Turns out Anubis has been spotted around town -- we just didn't know where to look.
