Japan Presents Foreign Dignitaries With...A DS Lite

Illustration for article titled Japan Presents Foreign Dignitaries With...A DS Lite

The Group of Eight - ie the cool, popular kids of the developed world - just had a meet-up in Kyoto, Japan. Seemed to go swimmingly enough. To mark the occasion, and to send their guests off in style, the hosts presented all the visiting politicians with some gifts unique to Japan, like some manga-style caricatures and that very snazzy-looking DS Lite console. They're double-lacquered to give the consoles a glossy finish, and each was topped off with a print depicting a pagoda and some cherry blossoms. Needless to say, these are probably now the most valuable/expensive DS Lites in the world, and needless to say, you will never own one. Unless you get lucky and see Condi or Gordon Brown hocking theirs on Craigslist.

@AngelMayLaugh: No, I think you were right the first time. By the time I get the country of Ferretland up and running on Mars, it probably be the G99. ;)

@quen: Good point. Speaking of which, do you know where I can get that Iraqi Ministry guy who was telling the world how great Iraq was doing against the US? Mister "They'll be throwing themselves against the walls of Iraq's great military". I totally need him on the payroll in my government.
