President of Czech Republic steals a Pen


(Youtube Direktpen, via MeFi)

Vaclav Klaus, President der Tschechischen Republik, klaut beim Staatsbesuch in Chile einen Stift.

What is amusing Czechs is this video, which shows Mr Klaus apparently pocketing a pen(encrusted with lapis lazuli) during a state visit to Chile. The Chileans say that their visitors are free to take the pens after official signing ceremonies. But the triumphant and furtive expression on Mr Klaus's face is quite striking.
