  2. This image sums up America's fleeting power. It's a damn shame. Anyone know of any good language institutes to learn Mandarin? (if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.)

  6. "Good to see you again," Xi said. "I know you are very busy with national affairs at home."

    "You ARE national affairs," Biden told his counterpart from the United States' largest creditor.

    "I used to have an important job when I was chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee," Biden told Xi. "I had a big office, large staff. Then I became vice president."

    Members of the press pool speculated that joke, at least, may have been lost in translation.
     
  8. "Somebody take me to the Peking Zoo, I gotta see that great fucking duck I'm always hearing about!"
