Self-proclaimed protector of Egypt's antiquities (and legend in his own mind) Zahi Hawass has gone public stating that the Giza pyramids are far too special and important to be included in the new "seven wonders of the modern world" list. :P

(Sorry folks, I wasn't sure how to post a link to the video, however you can go to www.cnn.com and look in the CNN Video section for "Egypt opts out of 'Wonders' list".)
