    Myyyy, aren't YOU very slick? Czech President grabs a freebie.








    That vid has 2,300,000+ hits.

    YouTube info:
    President of Czech Republic Václav Klaus "steals" pen during his official visit in Chile. President's spokesman Radim Ochvata said it was a gift.

    Same video with fewer hits and a different description:



    YouTube info: Cameras caught Czech President Vaclav Klaus last week as he stealthily pocketed a pen during a joint appearance with Chile's leader. The video of the act has gone viral on YouTube.

    And an article from Ghana News :: <i>Video</i>: Czech president caught "pocketing" a pen ::: Breaking News | News in Ghana | lighternews

    Caption to a video capture: The video shows Klaus clearly admiring the pen, then slowly moving it into one of his jacket pockets as Chilean President Sebastian Pinera speaks to the assembled members of the media.

    Article: As just about anyone who's ever worked in an office can attest, one of life's most festering annoyances are people who don't return pens that they borrow. Now it appears as though Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus may be one of those people, and the citizens of the nation he rules over are none too pleased about it.

    You see, Klaus, whose most notable prior controversy was probably his flat rejection of climate change science—a position that he even appeared on Glenn Beck's show to tour—was caught on video coyly pocketing a ceremonial pen during a recent visit to Chile. What's more, the brazen stylus heist took place in full view of the media during a ceremony to announce a trade agreement. The video shows Klaus clearly admiring the pen, then slowly moving it into one of his jacket pockets as Chilean President Sebastian Pinera speaks to the assembled members of the media.

    Now, Reuters is reporting that some Czech citizens are accusing Klaus of being a kleptomaniac. But the president's staffers claim that he had every right to take the pen—and that he was, in fact, acting entirely in line with established Czech state protocols. "We at the Prague Castle always give such a pen to delegations, along with a notepad," presidential spokesman Radim Ochvat told the news agency.

    It's just a fucking pen, in a case that both men have in front of them..
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    ^ I don't give a very big hoot (perhaps a tiny hoot), but it still looks odd how he seems to be sneaking it into his pocket. Why not just put the pen back in the case and take the entire works? He could have confidently placed it in his inside breast pocket rather than looking like a shoplifter trying to pull a fast one.
