The 2 countries exchanging gifts is a long line tradition...

The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet.

Barack Obama, the leader of the world's richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films - a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks.



I think it's funny how this wasn't AT ALL covered in the news... typical

The Prime Minister seems like he's one of those "Trying-Too-Hard-To-Not-Seem-Racist" guys by giving Obama the anti-slave ship pen holder thing. which happens to be a horrible gift anyway.

A pen holder is more exciting than movies? How...

As long as To Kill a Mockingbird and Fight Club were in there, I'd be happy.

EDIT: 1 out of 2 ain't bad...

Yeah I love how all these leaders keep getting caught with their pants down trying not to be racist but ending up making racist remarks/gestures while trying not to.

So damn funny.

Actually what would be typical is if this WERE covered in the news as if it matters at all -.-

We have unemployment rates the highest they've been since the 60s and 70s. The stock market is at its worst since 1996.

The news should cover boring ass traditions that have no positive role in anything? Open your eyes.

I would say it would be possible if we're in less debt than everyone else, but I find that hard to believe.

I think that he is showing everyone his racism by keeping the different colored pens separate.

Better than buying him a 50 cent CD

i think the only reason i might want the pen holder is because of possibly historical value. i mean...it might be intersting to look up the ship and have its history and part of it...but other than that...get a damn cup to hold your pens...itll probably hold more.

Stupid US.
You aren't the richest country.
You are in extreme debt to china.
It doesn't even fit.
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

this was on the daily show about a week ago actually.

hillary clinton also presented a "reset button" to the leader of russia. which was as exactly what it sounds like; a plastic red button that had "reset" written on it in russian. except the russian dude said that it was the wrong word, because what was written on the button meant "overcharged". hillary and the russian dude then stood together for pictures as they both pressed the button together. the russian dude looked kinda annoyed...

woot for american foreign policy and hillary clinton's competence!

I thought that was so hilarious.
"Overcharged"...
It's as if the truth about everything this country stands for is looking for ways to let itself out.

This thread is now about what Obama should have gotten Brown and vice versa.

Obama should have given Brown a PS3. It can play MGS4 and Blu-Ray discs.
