President Obama gave the Queen of the United Kingdom, etc., etc., (title goes on for about 16 lines) an Ipod with some photos and videos of her visit to the United States. Why? BECAUSE YOU UTTER MORONS, it's a symbolic gift. It's the kind of thing one head of state gives another. SHE gave HIM an autographed photograph of herself and her husband.

It's not a personal gift; that would be one step away from vulgar. And it's not as if you could give her something she couldn't get for herself. Sh'e one of the wealthiest women in the world EVEN AFTER separating the "state" stuff from the "personal" stuff.

These things are meaningless in the largest sense, and you know it, so stop being such twerps about it.
