World Bank President's Woes?
















Can you beat this!?!?!?!? World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz may be dedicated to freeing the world from poverty - but he seems unable to afford a new pair of socks. Or is it a case of not having enough time to pop into the shops and get some new ones? Mr Wolfowitz's sartorial deficiencies were revealed when he took his shoes off while visiting a mosque in Edirne , Western Turkey. Both of the grey socks sported holes with his big toes peeking through. The last World Bank annual report for 2006 puts the president's salary as of 1 July, 2005 at $391,440 (£200,279).

I weighed myself today and my weight still remains 85KG. Thank God at least I havent gained since the last time even if I havent lost anymore. So my ticker remains stationary in the interim. I'll try and be more dedicated this month and get the ticker to move a liitle bit to the right by the end of this month. Have a lovely weekend folks.

  4. that is truly hilarious. The World-Bank president with a hole in his socks.

    If we were to turn the tables around and lets assume he was wearing some 20 thousand dollar socks, definitely the story wont be the same huh

  14. LOL...Maybe he just didnt pay attention. Some people are forgetful like that. Or maybe he didnt think he would have to take off his shoes? Keep up your weight loss efforts...The weight will come off

  15. lol!!! ok i think with all the money he has, he can afford new socks. someone tell him to buy one! You are really dedicated to the weight loss thing. Hope really that nxt time you weigh yourself, you would weigh less!

  16. im almost convinced he wore that socks as a publicity stunt.With all the problems on his head, maybe he wants regular people to look at him as a regular guy.

  23. aww. i kind of like seeing this picture. reminds me that everyone has their own little weird thing..at least he isnt splurging out on 365 socks a year, not that he cant afford it!bless him!

    ReplyDelete
  24. at least his girlfriend (of the topped up salary scandal) can buy him a drawerfull! Did you read Nuhu Ribadu's scandalous defence of this man? not of the socks...

  25. LOL! So funny! I pity that guy he seems to be havin so many problems nowdays!
    Reminds me of our ver own minister down here who was photographed in da same state n da next day local comedians were presenting him with new pairs of socks..LOL
    I guess it's amatter of being so engrossed in politics that they forget such things!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lol! How embarrassing! Didn't he know that he would have to take his shoes off? Someone in his posse should have informed him. This is definitely the least of his problems though.
