Featured Episode


Curse of the Nile is a hieroglyphics copypasta that's a variant of the Curse of Ra copypasta, Amharic Curse copypasta and the Pharaoh's Curse meme. The copypasta surfaced in late 2023, often paired with a variant of L + Ratio reading, "L + dont care + CURSE OF THE NILE ‼️ ‼️" The copypasta was started by an Instagram comment from a user named wagadoogado in late August 2023.


On August 31st, 2023, Tumblr[1] user cursedpinterest posted a screenshot of a currently unknown Instagram comment section showing one user (e) saying, "I'm pretty sure those are fake hieroglyphics I'm not sure though," and another user (wagadoogado) replying a week later with the copypasta:

L + dont care + CURSE OF THE NILE ‼️ ‼️

The screenshot (shown below) gained over 490 notes in 19 days on Tumblr.[1]

On September 15th, 2023, X/Twitter[4] user @EverythingOOC posted a skewed and saturated screenshot of the original Instagram comment, gaining roughly 44,500 likes in four days (shown below).
