Godzilla in Japan
One thing to relate - at an official reception Mayor Dave couldn't find his gift for the local mayor. Carey then said in front of everyone that he had given the box with the present in it to a young Japanese woman there to help him. She then carried the box up to the banquet. But the gift wasn't there and the young lady was very embarrassed as people thought she had lost some of the contents. Turns out that Carey left the gift in his hotel room. Nothing like sloughing off blame to an underling, especially in a society that values dignity.
Maybe the funniest thing was a public FB post (now thankfully removed) of buck-nekkid borough muckety-mucks with only a small towel covering their naughty bits, but not their ample personages. I can see Jr High kids doing something like that but...?
I did save that photo, but no worries, that won't be (ur-rumph) exposed here.
