Putin's Pootin' Gift
State, Media 'Button' Lips Over Hillary's Russian Gaffe
From the article, it seems nobody knows how the word 'reset' was mistranslated into the Russian word 'overload' on Clinton's Reset Button gift to the Russian Foreign Minister. I guess we should just be glad they didn't come up with the word 'doomsday' instead.
Anyway, while this administration is set on devolving the art of gift-giving to government heads to cheap gag gifts, one excellent idea for Clinton's gift to PM Vladimir Putin is a Pull My Finger Fred doll.
Imagine the hillarity that will ensue when Putin pulls Fred's finger...
How do you say Rootin' Tootin' in Russian?
