This editorial cartoon by Steve Breen appeared in The San Diego Union-Tribune earlier this month, re-imagining President Barack Obama's gift to Queen Elizabeth from when he visited Buckingham Palace several weeks ago.

In this alternate universe, Her Majesty never received that iPod filled with Broadway tunes and video footage from her 2007 U.S. trip; instead, she's wailing on her new copy of Guitar Hero, as Prince Philip looks on disapprovingly. It's not that much of leap to imagine this scenario (the actual gift, not the Queen playing Guitar Hero), considering First Lady Michelle Obama recently presented a Gibson acoustic guitar to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, France's First Lady.
