Japan's leader, Bush going to Graceland (David Jackson and Richard Benedetto, 6/28/06, USA TODAY

President Bush is taking Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi to the Elvis Presley shrine at Graceland on Friday, although first the two leaders have serious matters to discuss.

That's American. Now let's see if the President can get Mr. Koizumi to have one of these bad boys for lunch.

Why is Koizumi on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls? I thought he was our ally.

What could be more important than talking about Elvis?

If OJ will cooperate, I will give an autographed copy of Redefining Sovereignty to the first 5 people who send video of themselves (or anyone else, I suppose) eating a Buck And O Burger. The video must be sufficiently explicit to allow the judges to determine that, in fact, the "Burger" has been prepared according to the official recipe.

My mother warned me about the terrible things that could happen if you meet someone from the Internet. I see now that she was sugarcoating it.

Hey, I've got this software EULA that you might be able to explain to me. You seem to know the language....

Since GWB's dad tossed his cookies on the Japanese PM in '92, I guess it only fair that Koz return the favor.
