not standing on ceremony

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 25, 2010

Hats off to Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov. The man doesn't take offense lightly.

When he arrived in Rome for a state visit, a band was playing at the airport welcoming ceremony, and the Bulgarian flag was flying-- upside down.

Then he met with Pope Benedict XVI, and Vatican TV carried a report, identifying Borisov and his companions as members of a delegation from Macedonia.

Nevertheless his quick visit to Rome was "a big success," Borisov told reporters. "There were no gaffes," he insisted.  

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
