I don't know why everyone is getting so annoyed about Big Guy's use of "England" instead of "Great Britain" during his remarks with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Like Big O said in the limo after his meeting with the man he affectionately calls, Gordo, it's not like they're an empire or anything anymore (but please note, if I had been running at that point, "Great Britain" would have been the word on the screen; I know these things).
The meeting with Brown, by the way, went phenomenally well. Big Guy gave him a DVD player that would play the DVDs that we gave him in Washington, DC a couple of weeks ago. As Gordo pointed out, now we just have to give him a U.S.-model-retooled-for-European-use flat screen TV to attach to the DVD player that can play the DVDs so he can watch them.
We got the same "faux appreciation" from our meeting with the Queen and her husband/walker. So what if we gave her an i-Pod with videos of herself on it. That's a $200 value, and it's not like we got her something she can't use because she's a techno-tard, like an i-Touch. Plus, she can take those videos off and replace them with whatever she wants, Benny Hill skits, the George Michael Bathroom Sessions with "special guest" Elton John, her grandsons in drag at posh St. Andrew's parties, Big O doesn't care.
We are being roasted over here for our gift, but I don't see anyone pissing on the crappy gift the Queen gave Big Guy. A picture of herself? So what if it's a "tradition." Lady M was looking at the gift in the car, and thinks the frame is real sterling silver. She says she will either melt it down and have it made into something cool, like a paperweight in the shape of an African fertility god, or use the at-home gold-plating kit Oprah gave her to make it look a lot classier and re-gift it to the Browns next year for Kwanza.

TOTUS, naughty boy. Is there any truth to the rumor that Bush was photoshopped out of the video given to the Queen?ReplyDelete
Also, (this is true) I read that FLOTUS made a fauxpas by putting her well-toned arm on the Queen's shoulder.
I think they would have been better off if they had given Her Majesty a bag of Snausages for her corgis. At least it would be something she could use.ReplyDelete
Now all The Big Guy needs to do is to give Brown a transformer so the American DVD player will run on British electrical voltage.ReplyDelete
TOTUS, POTUS did it again! (not a joke)ReplyDelete
Obama Photos and Videos uploaded on to Queen's I-pod
My daughter forwarded me a photo of the royal corgis being walked at Buckingham Palace today just as the "Beast" passed by. We have been owned by corgis over the years and she speculated whether POTUS would want some for the White House. The response from the current corgi in residence at my home was: " We are not amused at the prospect of sharing space with the fearless reader."ReplyDelete
jpehrlich88, POTUS already has a dog. (not nice)ReplyDelete
I don't often laugh out loud while reading blogs, but "She says she will either melt it down and have it made into something cool, like a paperweight in the shape of an African fertility god ...." did it. Good work, TOTUS!ReplyDelete
You could never be ugly. I think you're my ideal man, er, I mean, electronic gadget.
She should have regifted the Churchill bust back to him.ReplyDelete
So I heard that along with that ipod, he also gave her a written apology for the US rebelling against England?! WTF?!?!ReplyDelete
Re: "England" v. "Great Britain," what really incensed the BRITISH was B.O. saying: "What's so great about Britain? Nothing special about them." [this is, BTW, offical State Dept. policy now]ReplyDelete
Barry's Used, seriously?!? If so, that was no faux pas by FLOTUS, a.k.a. "Biceps." That was a power move for sure. Disgusting.
Yeah, Still Stacy, nice thought, but, really, in spite of how utterly rude it was, getting Winston Churchill off a ship that is rapidly sinking under the weight of a Marxist Demagogue's exhorbitant debt [B.O.'s budget would triple the national within 10 years] was really the decent thing to do.
Of course, as valiantly witty Daniel Hannon (sp?) of Great Britain so eloquently said recently, Churchill's own country is rapidly approaching its ultimate demise thanks to Socialism. Glad Churchill didn't live to see the day... .
This blog is killing me. I often get so engrossed reading the "facts" and then there is the punch line. This blog is making all this sad news that is going on around us tolerable and even funny. I am optimistic that those with sense and the country's best interest will prevail and maybe we can get TOTUS a real gig working for a conservative.ReplyDelete
TOTUS, I'm wondering if "First Children"OTS helped in the music selection for the Queen. Maybe the girls downloaded the karoake version of "We're All in This Together" (High School Musical) for Her Royal Highness! It could be the theme song for the G-20.ReplyDelete
yo, yo, yo, check it before ya wreck it. this be michelle and you better stop before you rock. totus be cool. he my main man. he in de house doin' it barry style. we be giben i pods and shit. don't mess with thunder n' lighin' yo you check it;. peace out. michelle in the hoodReplyDelete
TOTUS you had better watch out the next thing you know you might be replaced by the BOTUS(Blackberry of the US) The Barrack is tech savy he knows how to upload to an I POD or maybe his kids did it for him?ReplyDelete
TOTUS, does Big O get these gifts from frequent flier miles aboard Air Force One?ReplyDelete
Unbelievable that even Big Guy uses "England" and "Great Britain", since neither is the name of the actual country. It is the United Kingdom, for crying out loud.ReplyDelete
How about giving a gold plated replica of TOTUS!!ReplyDelete
The perfect gift for ALL situations would be a gold plated replica of TOTUS!!!!ReplyDelete
TOTUS, why can't you make Barry see the light that is your wisdom? Pee Es: Lady M (of "out damn spot" fame) is plotting your demise. Watch your back.ReplyDelete
Oh be still my heart! A gold plated replica of TOTUS?!!!ReplyDelete
Nice one, Red -- spot on, heh, heh!ReplyDelete
Yeah, TOTUS, watch out for M.o'bama. She and that stinking king-in-my-own-mind may get theirs in the end, but, don't let your little sub-components sleep alone in her castle. One of those ominous holes in the backyard just may have your name on it. And keep fully charged and set to "Ready" your screen-embedded la... TEXT DELETED BY AUTHOR: INFO. CLASSIFIED.
You HAVE to write more often. First you addict us. . . then you leave us hanging for days at a time. WE KNOW there's all sorts of interesting stuff going on with you and Big O. . . let us in!

which is made up of the island of Great Britain and Ireland (most of it anyway. Northern Ireland is not part of the UK).
Great Britain is composed of England, Scotland and Wales.
