Horrible things happen when you leave the United States, especially if you are George Bush:
President Bush collided with a local police officer and fell during a bike ride on the grounds of the Gleneagles golf resort while attending a meeting of world leaders Wednesday.
Bush suffered scrapes on his hands and arms that required bandages by the White House physician, said White House spokesman Scott McClellan.
The police officer was taken to a local hospital as a precaution, McClellan said. Police said the officer suffered a "very minor" ankle injury.
It was raining lightly at the time.
Pretzels that bite back, bicycles that suddenly rear on their hind legs! I don't believe any of this, sorry. We are kept in the dark about something that makes the most powerful man in the world fall over all the time. But the story certainly gives the Scots something else to laugh at about us.
