politicalambiguity asked: No take-backs? You mean to say you didn't keep the receipt? How are we Brits meant to know when their warranty runs out? This is such an insensitive gift :P

1. Of course we didn’t keep the receipt. How else could we ensure no returns or refunds? Anyhow, Mittens and the Snowbilly are – er – priceless. Impossible to put a true value on such a collector’s set.

2. Warranties are probably socialist, right? Like America gives warranties on anything…

3. We didn’t say the gift was sensitive, but it’s most definitely homemade and from the heart.

Look, make the Snowbilly the court jester or something, and Mittens can partake in some proper sport we Americans see on PBS occasionally. While he does that, various leaders in the UK can throw things at his impeccably coiffed head. It’s not like he’ll recognize who they are anyway.



  1. politicalambiguity said: Can we not just take Obama off your hands? That would make everyone happy, I feel. Also I can’t believe he couldn’t remember Milliband - it’s not like he wasn’t briefed RIGHT BEFORE the interview. I think most of Britain would join in to throw things
