Ladies and gentlemen, mesdames et messieurs, meine Damen und Herren, ?важаемые го?подины и го?пожа!
Just as we think this world is going to hell, something happens to show us that if even the most powerful men on this planet can fall prey to the most basic of human flaws. We are, afterall, only humans – although the jury is still out in the case of Dubya 😉
Anyways, Someone stole W.’s watch while he was doing the ropes in Albania (the country Greeks and Macedonians call West ;)). Watch carefully… At 3:15, the watch is still on his left wrist, and at 3:06 (it’s a count-down clock) it’s not there anymore… You can see clearly again that is the case at 2:45
Hey, G.W.! What’s the time?
In other news… French president Nicolas Sarkozy provided the undisputable proof that power intoxicates. Namely, his cabinet had made a Belgian TV network apologise for a statement by the anchor that Mr. Sarkozy drank more than just water prior to his G8 newsconference. But the fact that he came to the press conference straight out of a meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin strongly suggests that there was vodka involved… See for yourselves:
You want to… burp… ask qest…burp…ions, or do you want a …burp… ment first
It only goes to show that when democratic institutions fail, you can count on the Balkans and Russia to do the right thing and provide one of those Kodak moments 😉
P.S.: This post was inspired by venera’s comment on yesterday’s post.
P.P.S.: A Reuters article claims that Bush’s watch was not stolen… they claim he put it in his pocket.
You can decide who to believe: Reuters or Pengovsky 😀
