Wait, Wait, it's Sarkozy

I'm a fan of NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, and they did a nice job of the "Nicolas Sarkozy in Berlin" story.

Host Peter Sagal: Sarkozy said he tried to get to Berlin, but says he was stopped by that sign reading "You must be this tall to tear down that wall", with a little picture of a border guard holding his arm out. This has cast doubt on other Facebook photos he's posted in recent months, like the one showing him stepping out of Apollo 11 onto the Moon, captioned "One small step for one small man".

Panelist Tom Bodett: How about that one where he's standing in front of that beautiful former supermodel woman?

PS: Carla Bruni? His actual wife? You don't believe that either?

TB: I'm just saying.

PS: I don't know. You can do wonders with Photoshop. And what would she see in him, you know?

Panelist Kyrie O'Connor: The top of his head, mostly.

Does the missus always wear flats? That's sooooo 1950s.

Good grief! Did he really stand on tippy toes? I don't recall Napoleon ever stooping (ha ha) to that! (yes, I'm pretty old and I do remember long ago things....)

Yes he did. Short and vain. See new stuff added to post.
