As cute as this story is (a modern-day Ramesses the Great--who would have thought?!), it still makes me cringe a bit, despite the ending words to this article by an Egyptian guide.

It just goes to show that we as human beings are naturally drawn to wanting to be recognized and remembered. Really, there is no difference between we moderns and the Ancient Egyptians.
