.Hieroglyphs were the language of the ancient Egyptians. If you watched the Mummy movies then (may the mighty Osiris have mercy upon your soul) you know he Egyptians were top dog once. We know because they had a pretty pimpin' alphabet.

Incidently, turns out the Egyptians were big on dick jokes.

.What's hierogyph for hieroglyph?

.Unlike English, Ancient Egyptian writing uses more than 2,000 hieroglyphic characters, which must suck in spelling tests. Each hieroglyph represents a common object in ancient Egypt, such as FUCKING OWLS. Hieroglyphs could represent the sound of the object or they could represent an idea associated with the object. It's big and complicated and kind of insane. For example, the symbol that on it's own means 'son' can be combined with two other symbols to mean 'keep watch' which caused a lot of confusion for ancient would be stalkers.

One of the most well known pieces of ancient gibberish hieroglyphs is the Rosetta Stone which was a slab of granite with a ancient decree uncovered by Napoleon during one of his compensating capains in Egypt. It's written in ancient greek, and two types of hieroglyphics, like signs in airports. That's really where the similarities between London Heathrow and ancient Egypt end though. Sure in ancient Egypt you live a simple, hard life in fear of flood or famine or disease or war, but it's still less of a hassle than getting through security. I'd ask what the deal with airline food is, but it's just struck me they must've been preserving those goddamn rolls since the Second Dynasty anyways.
