2. President Fox has a "Get me the hell out of here" look on his face
The Chimp on the other hand seems to be enjoying dressing in a blue silk robe with a nice big bow on it.

Each to his own, I guess.

7. I read that Kennedy refused to even put a cowboy hat on...
during the Nov. '63 trip to Dallas for fear of looking like an idiot. At the breakfast he went to in on the day he was assassinated he was given a big old Texas cowboy hat and someone tried to just put it on his head and he quickly grabbed it and said he'd wear in at home.
