布殊的字條

Inside the USA看到這張圖,相中人是小布殊,攝於聯合國六十週年大會上。字條上寫着:”I think I may need a bathroom break? Is this possible….”Inside the USA的站長Jérôme 是旅居美國的法國人,當然借機奚落小布殊一番;而網友對這張相片的真偽也莫衷一是,但也一致認為這幅圖倒跟小布殊的笨蛋形象十分脗合。再到Yahoo一看,這幅圖的確來自路透社,Yahoo的解說是:

U.S. President George W. Bush writes a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005. World leaders are exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations at a summit on Wednesday but their blueprint falls short of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s vision of freedom from want, persecution and war.

究竟這幅圖是否偽造?無論真相如何,聊以一笑也未嘗不可:小布殊原來連上洗手間也要取得賴斯的批准。(也可能是,他需要賴斯陪同上洗手間…又或者是,他不確定自己是否真的有需要,所以要請教賴斯。)

16/9/2005: 這張圖連BBC也有報道: Bush ‘caught short’ at UN summit

好了,相片已證實是真的。據網站Editor and Publisher報道,路透社攝影記者Rick Wilking表示絕無意令布殊出醜,並為布殊作辯護,表示布殊不熟悉聯合國會場,上洗手間自然要請教一下賴斯。但無論如何,這張相片在歐洲媒體已被引為笑柄。愛爾蘭一份報章的標題是:To Pee or Not to Pee, That is the Question.
