The Riddle Of The Sphinx - Redux

The stony staring Sphinx asks all the visitors a new riddle:

What creature WALKS around the Sphinx and Pyramids in the morning?

What creature SITS for a turkish coffee after the tour?

What creature LEAPS into a Pizza Hut/King seafood pizza for a late lunch?

What creature has a severe case of the RUNS as soon he lands in Tripoli airport eight hours later?



The perplexed crowds wonder at the mysticism of the conundrum, and they seek a wise king to answer the cryptic puzzle... but he is gone far away, gone the king, far way, to the shore of Leptus Magna where the Punic empire reigned...

Yes, the king is a man gone afar, a man a king far gone... so far king gone...


And of course, there was no toilet paper within several centuries of the Tripoli airport: thankfully Colleague-san came much more prepared than

I already know more than is healthy about the far flung middens of foreign countries, thank you vee much...

Archaeologists are strange people, no doubt about it...

(I don't want to go into too much detail, but "search" is not the right word for my situation, maybe "filter" or "sluice"...)
