Obama Finds Look-Alike Hieroglyph In Tomb in Egypt (Video)

The pyramids outside of Cairo boast tombs, camels and relics thousands of years old.

What about an image reminiscent of the 44th president?

The great pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and during a brief stop here Thursday after delivering a major speech aimed at Muslims around the world, President Obama spotted another notable sight: a hieroglyphic that showed the face of a man with big ears.

Obama entered the tomb and saw it right away.

"That looks like me!" he said. "Look at those ears!"

Dr. Zahi Hawass, the secretary general of the supreme council of antiquities -- who played tour guide to Obama and his entourage -- went on to explain to the president, his Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and others the history of the tomb of Kar, who was a priest, a scholar and a judge.

A few moments later, when aides Rahm Emanuel, Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod and Reggie Love descended into the tomb, Obama went back over and showed them the big-eared image, sparking laughs.
