So the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Briton comes to see the new President of the United States and brings with him items of historic and intrinsic value.
Let me think... how did our esteemed and "highly vetted" President reciprocate? Ah, yes, we gave the guy that is blind in one eye and going blind in the other 25 DVDs. Nice. Classy even.
But wait, there's more! Oh yes. You think I'm going to mention the $15 spur-of-the-moment gift shop purchase for the Browns' boys, but you would be wrong. Maybe I'll mention that the only picture of Mrs. Prime Minister and Mrs. "Toned Arms" President doesn't even show the face of one of the participants. But no, I'm letting that go. Ah, you say, maybe he'll mention the scrapping of the traditional side-by-side press conference and the bad impression that sends. But no.
Oh no. It's worse than that.
The DVD set given to PM Brown cannot play in European DVD players. He tried.
Smarterest President evah!
UPDATE: Ace has profanity laced headline (you've been warned), but I do like his Photoshop of the TOTUS (Teleprompter Of The United States). And he pointed out something I missed in the initial scan of the Telegraph. "A White House spokesman sniggered when I put the story to him and he was still looking into the matter when my deadline came last night." Words. Fail. Me.
This is how we treat our friends?!
