After news of the Singapore election results reached the White House, U.S. President George W. Bush immediately requested that a congratulatory “gift basket” be sent to PM Lee Hsien Loong. An anonymous source revealed that the contents consisted of a Mr. Potato Head set with the optional extra-big feet attachment. Mr. Bush also wrote a personal note thanking PM Lee for his support in the War on Terror.
