You are a man of your word

gondhir of teunc came across the image on the left and noted the resemblance.


First prime of Userkaf?1 (Click to view image at full size)

The caption on the left reads:
3-15 Ka-Aper, from his mastaba at Saqqara, Egypt, Dynasty V,
ca. 2540-2350 B.C. Wood, approx. 3'7" high. Egyptian Museum, Cairo.

1 Is "userkaf" what Jocasta Nu gives people in the lobby of the liberry? Inquisitive minds want to know!

approx. 3'7" high!
Look at the caption again: approx. 3'7" high. That's boviously a vert famos hobbit.

Seriously, Ka-Aper was a scribe of some 5th dynasty Pharoah's court, and may have been the headman of some village. But for his being immoralized (woo, real Tyope) by that sycamore carving, none of us would prolly know who he was.

Now, do you mean Teal'c or Chris Judge?

Wow, good for you
So, what can you tell me about our friend Kzer-ZaKa-Aper, besides what I was able to look up?

Pretty much the same. Which is more than I can say about the other guy... some TV dude, right?

Yep, Christopher Judge... he's actually pretty good.

Played college football, too, though I don't know that he was well known for that even among university students in the USA.
