Ramses

Get started on the Pyramid, you.

Thanks, Emily!

Ah! So the mystery is solved! It was The Power Of Disapproval that got the pyramids erected!

I can well imagine that with Disapproving Rabbit Slavemasters in control of the hoomins, the latter would've been "highly motivated" to make a good job of it, for fear of incurring Rabbit Disapproval!

... bet there was he** to pay when some knucklehead miss-read the blueprints and saddled us with Sphinx that does not look like Cinnamon ;-) The force of disapproval for so intense it threw him up so hard against the statue, the nose fell off.

That reminds me, I must copy that song onto my iPod: Hop Like An Egyptian.

I have been looking at Egyptian hieroglyphs, but I did not find a symbol in the shape of a rabbit. Is that because the rabbit is so holy that its name or image may not be written explicitly?

Fleetie, get yourself a copy of the Pyramid Texts. The name of the first Pharaoh to have anything written on his tomb walls was named Unas or Wenas. The U or W is represented by a beautiful rabbit, perhaps a high desert plateau hare. I would also like to recommend the research required to find a Larson cartoon with the caption "It was an innocent mistake, but nevertheless, a moment later Maurice found himself receiving the full brunt of the Mummy's wrath." Sorry I can't do fancy stuff on the computer, i.e., providing this stuff. I do appreciate you all explaining all these archaeological mysteries. Ramses is a lovely bunn, too.

It seems that either Ramses has been successful in getting most of the hoomins on here to stop surfing the net and GET BUILDING, or, he has scared them into silence!

All I want to do is scoop up this adorable little pharaoh and love on him like a baby.
It is his own dang fault. I just about choked on my apple when I saw him.

Brandi, please (a) set all food and drink items aside when coming to this site, (b) remember that while in olden days "Ramses" meant "Son of of Ra," in our day, it means "ram (and) seize" the human. Fleetie, you all over there are off the hook. Now I am going to try to say this the gentlest way I can. Ramses saw Stonehenge and said "You Brits can forget about it."
