In ancient Rome, a merchant who sold fake jewels to the Emperor's wife was sentenced to face a lion in the arena. When the gate finally opened, a chicken walked out. Emperor Gallienus proclaimed, “He practiced deceit and then had it practiced on him.” The Emperor then let the jeweler go home.
In Denmark in World War II, border guards would screen homecoming Danes by making them say the name of a dessert: rødgrød med fløde. Due to its difficulty in pronunciation, German infiltrators could not pass the test.
In the 6th Century AD, two Christian monks smuggled silkworms out of China in bamboo canes. Those silkworms were used to give the Byzantine Empire a trade monopoly in Europe, which became the foundation of their economy for the next 650 years.
In 1974 Egyptologists observed that the condition of the mummy of Ramesses II was rapidly deteriorating and they flew it to Paris for examination. He was issued an Egyptian passport that listed his occupation as “King (deceased)”. The mummy was received outside Paris, with full military honors befitting a king.
