Golden Egyptian Arches; or, General Silliness with Art History

I greatly enjoyed my trip to Egypt in 2010 just before the Arab Spring. However, our tour guide had the annoying habit of attributing just about everything in Western history to the ancient Egyptians via half-truths, over-generalizations, and periodic nonsense.

Several of us responded by creating our own list of things that the Egyptians “clearly” invented, such as McDonalds, as is clearly shown by this golden arch within a cartouche, marking it a name of great importance.

Don’t believe me? Then why is there a spork to the right of the cartouche?  Clearly proof.
