LONDON - Proving that it does not have to be Christmas in order to exchange presents President Obama and Queen Elizabeth have exchanged gifts.
The American president gave the English queen an iPod with the hits of the band Queen, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Are The Champions," "Another One Bites The Dust," "La Bamba," and "If Love Were Oil, I'd Be A Quart Low."
And her royal highness, one of the richest women in the world, gave the president several gifts including a British cookbook entitled, How You Can Make a Biscuit That Tastes Just As Good As The Queen's Biscuit, a syrofoam English tea set, and A $10 off coupon to KFC.
During an interesting conversation the president asked the queen what team she liked to win the NCAA Basketball Tournament's March Madness, and she thought about it for a few moments and replied that she was picking the New York Yankees.
The president did not miss a beat and he replied, "Me too."
He then asked her what she thought about the China situation. She smiled politely and answered, "I am the queen, and being the queen mother, I do not concern myself with any issues of a domestic nature."
The president looked over at the "First Mama" Michelle and she gave her husband a fist bump, grinned, and remarked, "And that's what I'm talkin' about Barry."
