It wasn't that bad

    As always, Abe is an embarrassment in public. He either has a foot in mouth disease or he just can't control himself not to look weak and foolish on the international stage.

    Look at the Sultan's expression. He's basically wondering what is this fool doing? Is he going to wash his hands? Do I have to shake his snob covering hands after this shindig?

    Never had the need to have a sneeze that cannot be with held?

    Poor guy sometimes the body does what the body needs regardless.

    where's Abe's samurai spirit? looks like he needs to brush up on his Hagakure. "It is bad taste to yawn in front of people... It is the same with sneezing. One will appear foolish."
