quickdraw: For those of you too lazy to click on the link somebody in some country you never heard of tried to give Obama a mask that Obama wasn't allowed to accept.

Except that the somebody (the king) didn't *try* to give Obama the mask, he gave him the mask. And Obama *did* accept it, but not for himself. He accepted it on behalf of the country and it's in the National Archives, not sitting on his dresser.

I won't get into the symbolism behind the President of the United States, a man mired in scandal who cloaks himself in secrecy and won't even truly put to rest long-standing questions about the nature of his birth, accepting a "mask" on behalf of his nation, though. That's a discussion for another time.
