You’re joking, right? This is a broadcast news April Fool’s, right? NO?!?!
The president of the United States gave the Queen of England a flipping iPod?!?!?
As if the “reset” button that actually said “overcharge” you gifted the Russians with wasn’t enough.
As if the 25 DVD set of “classic” American movies to the British PM (which, incidentally were the wrong format to play on UK DVD players) wasn’t enough.
An iPod. Because Lizzy is such a hip chick, she just must need one if she doesn’t have one already (she does).
What’s next? Ooh… I know: let’s give the Russians a set of James Bond movies the next time we owe them a nice diplomatic gift. That’ll go over *really* well. Or some good 50’s anti-communist movies for the Chinese.
But, hey, Great Britain isn’t all that important! It isn’t like we would bother to have a special relationship with a country best described as “slightly smaller than Oregon!”
It’s like getting gifts from your out-of-touch great-aunt who insists on buying you something every Christmas: you don’t know what’ll be in the package, but you’re pretty sure it’s headed straight for Goodwill.
Yeah. I can just feel the respect of the world flowing our way. Such an improvement over the previous president.
