Oh, bollocks!

"Oh, bollocks."
No, we can't definitively prove that Gordon Brown said that after witnessing a "Wrong Region" code when inserting a DVD given to him by Barack Obama, but we're sure something of the sort was uttered.


You see, the ridiculous DVD region coding system recently prevented the British Prime Minister from viewing a set of 25 "American classics" on DVD, all of which were bestowed upon him by President Obama during a recent visit to Washington, D.C.
We hate to bludgeon a dead mule, but seriously, when will the DRM madness end? Er, on second thought, maybe this is precisely what's necessary to keep those region-free player outlets in business, and thus, the economy strong.

Who was put in charge of buying this gift? What, you don't know who?
A Democrat staffer, who just like his boss has a lot of experience under his belt!

That is too funny. I have been to Europe several times. Their electrical outlets are different and so are many of the VCRs. Although they do have dual ones for movies coming from America. Obama and co. couldn't even get this right.

You would have figured somebody at State would have known this. Then again,they would have also known the custom of given the give and not gotten a DVD player from Walmart,but something meaningful to America.

Then again, it is amature hour in DC.
