Everybody Hates A Pen Thief
During a press conference with the president of Chile, the Czech Republic's president Vaclav Klaus is videotaped pocketing the ceremonial pen which also happens to be encrusted with semi-precious jewels. Link
The best part is around 32 seconds when he gets this gleeful grin on his face and buttons up his jacket in a very self-satisfied manner. Now, since I can't understand a word the Chilean president is saying, for all I know, Klaus is smiling because he just got complimented. I also enjoy the bit when he closes the box.
It was said that the citizens of the Czech Republic were pretty outraged at the "theft". For his part, President Klaus had only this to say:
"All I have to say is, it is not a pen but just a stylus," Klaus himself said on Tuesday, adding that he takes things all the time.
