First Lady Michelle Obama.... and all they got was this lousy picture of Gorbals Mick
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 9th June 2009

Like hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Houses of Parliament, Michelle Obama left clutching a souvenir.

But America's First Lady looks distinctly unimpressed at the gift she received after paying a secret visit to the Palace of Westminster.


Almost incognito: US First Lady Michelle Obama leaves the House of Commons in a motorcade this afternoon

For she was snapped leaving in an official car with a photo of the Commons' outgoing Speaker Michael Martin, who was forced to quit last month after a no confidence motion was signed by 23 MPs.

Mrs Obama made an unofficial visit to Parliament while spending the day in London on a private trip with daughters Sasha and Malia.

She had decided her daughters needed a more educational excursion after a shopping spree in Paris on Sunday following President Barack Obama's attendance at the weekend's D-Day commemorations in Normandy.

.....

It is not the first time gifts received by the Browns and the Obamas have come under the spotlight.

During the visit to Washington in March, the Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet.

In return, Mr Obama, the leader of the world's richest country, gave Mr Brown a box set of 25 classic American films on DVD - even though he is not known to be a film buff.

Obama, the leader of the world’s richest country, gave Mr Brown a box set of 25 classic American films on DVD plus they were the wrong region code as I recall. but maybe not.

new cruelty on another thread captioned that picture as

So Carla, about what you told me earlier. I just got word from my security detail. It turns out "bidet" isn't French for drinking fountain.

Thought that it was perfect.

Yes, Laura is lovely and her husband, although I didn’t always agree with him, is a true gentleman.

What a contrast to these current people who figure they’re entitled and pissed they had to wait so long.

Ok, this isn't the gorilla I saw at Animal Kingdom this spring, but it was very similar. It kept giving all of us the Michelle Obama glare...like this:
