Background info: Australia has a Governor-General. Read up on that here. Anyway, she was in Afghanistan today, paying a surprise visit to Australian troops stationed there. Troops who were bored.

So Governor-General Quentin Bryce flew in, said hello, shook some hands, dropped off a Wii and left. Bemused troops smiled, shook hands, waved goodbye, asked each other who the hell that was, then spent the night playing Wii Tennis and making penis-shaped, beige & green Miis.

Bit tight she only dropped off the single console. I know we're in an economic crisis, but still....
