While Obama was in Egypt touring the pyramids, he visited the Tomb of Qar, who his guide, Dr. Zahi Hawass, described as a well-known priest, scholar and judge in ancient Egypt. On the wall were hieroglyphs of Qar, primitive images engraved in the stone. He was a thin man man with big ears.
“That looks like me!” exclaimed President Obama. “Look at those ears.”
The president summoned to his top aides to take a look, and repeated his observation about the Qar hieroglyph.
“Look, that’s me,” he told them. None of his senior staff was willing to disagree with the boss. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel smiled politely, if not knowingly.
