The Czech Constitutional Court celebrated its 15th anniversary. Among the VIP guests were former president Vaclav Havel who in fact nominated the first judges in 1993, and his successor Vaclav Klaus who sometimes says that the court acts like a third chamber of the Czech Parliament [when the judges rule – way too often – that certain laws are unconstitutional…].
It was a nice experience to be about 15 meters [probably a little closer] away from them.
How creepy is this?
Some people have been attempting to sell President Vaclav Klaus’ hip joint in internet auctions. They tried two Czech ones but with no luck. Apparently, in one case due to its definition of an “organ”, despite the fact that it can no longer be re-used, and in the other case because Vaclav Klaus is not a saint, so his body parts can not be worshipped like bones and a scull of a saint. To put it simply and on a lighter note…
Either way, anyone who would buy it could well receive a free pass to a mental institution.
The president’s spokesman says he totally trusts the hospital in which Klaus got his new artificial joint, that the real one could not have gotten lost or stolen…
TV Nova secretly taped one of the men who claimed to have tried eBay, too, but with no response from eBay people so far…
President Vaclav Klaus will be inaugurated and sworn in. Again.
The pen is a gift from a leading Czech manufacturer of pencils, pens, crayons, etc, Koh-i-noor.
Aha, so the company decided to give the president a one-million crown gift for the purpose of writing ELEVEN LETTERS (V-a-c-l-a-v K-l-a-u-s).
What a waste. They should have made a deal with him or with the Office of the President that the pen be only lent and sold in a charity auction afterwards.
I sincerely hope this is the case, or that somebody gets the idea. Otherwise it is just a stupid gesture in which a Czech company uses the president for a huge PR stunt… Hats off to their PR specialists, but hey — it is still a waste…
