The power of a compliment

Russia's President Vladimir Putin has been overheard joking about the virility of his Israeli counterpart, who is accused of multiple rape. A Russian journalist said Mr Putin joked that President Moshe Katsav was a "mighty man", adding "we all envy him".
Gee, thanks, Mr. President. I am sure we, the Elders, could pull some strings. Come over when our Mr. president is in the nick and we'll let you spend some quality time together. You will be serviced by an expert, as you already know...
