Revolving Door

Yesterday was such a busy day for Dr. Ferragamo that it's no wonder she had to resort to time travel to fit everybody in! Some were welcomed warmly into the matching armchairs, like this guy:

...and also this guy:

But President Toledo of Peru? Well, sure, they had their laffs:

But, hello? Condi must be going! That's right, President Toledo was not invited to lounge in the royal matching armchairs. That's what "brief photo opportunity" means: no luxuriating in Princess Condi's vicinity, Mister, she's got other people to see! Also, if she hangs around you too long, buddy, she might have to kill you per Pat Robertson's orders.

All these bilateral talks. I've always wondered if the 'Bot wasn't bi.

Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa looks so gigglerific with the flag behind him. Like a candy-cane elf or the Cat in the Hat.

It's so jolly, I can almost hear the laughter of leprechauns. Slovenian leprechauns, of course, but leprechauns nonetheless.

It's do-si-do square dancing, Peruvian style!! Yaaaahooooo!!! No time for lounging around in matching armchairs for these two zany kids!

You know what the little boys and girls of this world need?

A Matching Armchairs Playset™.

Two chairs with interchangeable upholstery, a table, three sets of flowers (Mix-n-Match!), two little water glasses, and a fireplace backdrop.

*Throw rugs sold separately.

I like how she's looking at the camera and not Toledo as she's waving goodbye. Goodbye, brief photo opportunity! See you next time, dear cameras!
