Since it’s been a busy day I hadn’t checked the news, so I first heard of this during Ed’s podcast and thought it was an April Fools’ joke:
Barack Obama’s gift for the Queen: an iPod, your Majesty
Yes, really. An iPod.
Sometimes Scott is almost prophetic.
Worse yet: she already has one
It is believed the Queen already has an iPod, a 6GB silver Mini version she is said to have bought in 2005 at the suggestion of Prince Andrew.
While I expect the iPod will go on the garage sale next to Gordon Brown’s DVDs, Jonah Goldberg, however, had some O’fun.
On a related note:
Some bloggers feel that Michelle Obama should curtsy to the Queen. That is entirely up to Michelle Obama. However, it is standard protocol that Americans do not have to curtsy to any monarch.
