The Sphinx wasn't saying much either

New York - "Yeah, we'll, she probably thinks Iraq's Hanging Gardens of Babylon were Saddam's private execution compound, anyway," a Cairo spokesperson said today following reports that Beyoncé Knowles has been banned from several Wonders of the World sites after a verbal spat with former Egyptian antiquities curator Dr Zaki Hawass.

The Egyptologist claims singer Beyoncé subjected him a galling etiquette faux pas at a photoshoot beside the Sphinx near the Pyramids when she stood him up for four and a half hours getting her hair done 'and stuff' ahead of the PR op.

Hawass then got so mad at the US entertainer for her lack of respect that he used his awesome contacts to get her banned from other UNESCO photo-op sites popular with celeb A-listers including China's Great Wall, Greece's Parthenon, the Brits' Stonehenge and Russia's fabled equivalent of Roswell/Area 51.

Knowles, 69, remains tight-lipped about the incident which aides say is perfectly understandable considering her reluctance to apologise of Dr Hawass 'was just channeling the spirit of the Sphinx by staying schtum'.

Other world landmark sites considering extending the ban include the cretinaceous-era cockling beds of Norfolk, UK and Australia's famous Ayers Rock Dingo Park, Dr Hawass's secretary said today.
