Oh, come now. This is just too easy.

Obama and [Prime Minister Yoshihiko] Noda are due to talk, among other things, about trade pacts. At a formal dinner Monday evening, the Obama administration will announce a gift of 3,000 dogwood trees grown especially for Japan. It comes 100 years after Japan sent 3,000 cherry blossom trees to Washington.

The Prime Minister would be wise to inspect the trees for bite marks. Sometimes Barack prefers a more vegetarian alternative to dog meat.
