When President Obama was in Egypt last week, he came across this hieroglyphic that looked like, well, like him.

Uh oh. If the folks trying to prove Obama can't be president because isn't a U.S. citizen because he doesn't have a real birth certificate find out about this, they'll have a whole new line of inquiry to set up. See, it turns out he doesn't have a birth certificate because he was really born in ancient Egypt. They'll need to check out the papyrus records under the name Kar.
