Bowing to Non-American Customs and the Occasional Robot...

It’s Friday, do you know where your President is?

bo's eastern tour

He was last spotted in Japan where, I see, Drudge mocked him for bowing to a robot - butt you have to admit, the little guy was really good. The robot I mean:



Besides, in Japan bowing is a way of life. Especially for tall people.


And you know how BO likes to adapt to the local customs and culture; everywhere except America. So far Big Guy has been treated like royalty, first at the world famous “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” restaurant in the Tokyo where the starting price is an unbelievable $300 per plate, you get no say in what you’re going to get, and chattering by customers is discouraged.

Customers at Chef Jiro Ono's joint, Sukiyabashi Jiro, don't review menus — they simply sit at the basement restaurant and receive whatever dishes the stern kitchen master deems appropriate.

Sounds like Obamacare.

Anyway, apparently the locals were upset that BO came stag:

The Japanese press and several politicians were miffed by the fact that first lady Michelle Obama isn’t accompanying the president on the state visit -- the first for a U.S. president since former President Bill Clinton in 1996.

I don’t know why they’re complaining though, we sent Ambassador Caroline Kennedy instead.

I know she’s no fashion icon and busy Mom like Lady M, butt she was busy back home hosting the annual “Take Your Children to Work Day” at the Big White:

Where she comforted a little girl whose Daddy has been out of work for 3 years through no fault of his own. Or Big Guy.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that our stylist, per Lady M’s instruction, is dressing us a little younger now that we’ve hit the Big 5-0. Because at that age nothing is more flattering than full skirts and tight tees cinched up with a mile wide innertube and accented with a Mini-Me sweater:

Consider yourselves lucky, citizens of Japan; at least Caroline knows how to rock a proper bolero jacket.

This is MOTUS, reporting from the road somewhere in Flyover. Let’s be careful out there.
