You may remember the brouhaha in the British press after President Obama turned down the U.K.'s offer to keep a bust of Winston Churchill in the Oval Office. The evicted Winston was a gift/loan from our partners across the pond after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

But, alas, Prime Minister Gordon Brown comes this week bearing another token of friendship to replace Winston -- the prime minister who said, "If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons" -- with a pen holder. Yep, a pen holder.
