Fake Lake Redux

Japan has taken a page out of Canada's book, and built its own version of a small fake lake for the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation summit.

Japan's "lake" is digital, with virtual fish swimming about and a fountain that drips fake water to create fake ripples.

Wonder what it cost?

Now, if this had happened:
"Stephen, don't fall in," U.S. President Barack Obama joked to Harper.

I woulda said: 'Priceless.'

(That's my new fave picture of our evil doofus PM.)

Is Japan mocking Stevie and his megalomania?

LOLOLOL! You might have a point, dBO.

When it was suggested in the comments at the CBC that Japan was having a little snicker at Stevie's expense, someone jumped in in defence saying that the Japanese have a history of copying architecture (not that Fake Lake really qualifies) and gave the example of Tokyo Tower.

A fake lake surrounded by fake politicians.

Steve is a technological marvel - he comes with his own built-in personal flotation device - his hair!

I keep coming back to this post because this photo just brightens up my day :-)

Can we photo shop Steve in beach wear or fishing gear?

fern hill said...

Oo, oo, a wet suit, à la Doris! I can't photo shop atallatall. Who can? Alison?

Beijing York said...

A wet suit would be perfect :-)
