Live audio from the G8 Summit of world leaders:

"Yo, Blair, my main man! Whatup, dawg?"

"Oh yes, hello, George. Lovely to see you. A word with you in private, if I may ... "

"Dude, have you tried these rolls? They're mmph-mmmphing delicious."

"Yes, quite, I do agree. Very tasty. ... Um, George, about this Middle East thingie ... Um, a bit of a sticky wicket, don't you think?"

"All we need is for mmmph-mmph-ing Kofi Annan mmph get off his mmph-ing butt ... Speakin' a butt, T, did you have some a that pig I sliced at the German feast thing last night. That shit was was some kinda mmmphing gooo-oood! "

"Yes, yes, quite good that, I must say, but ... "

"And, hey, didja see the way Angie baby jumped when I squeezed her shoulders? That little German filly loves her some GW, I tell ya."

"I'm sure, George, but about this Israel/Lebanon situation ... What are your people thinking at this juncture?"

"Mmph mmmph, Condi's on the case. Relax. Mmmph. Pass me that butter, T-dawg. Mmmph, mmmph. See, the irony a the situation is that Syria's gotta get them Hezbollahs to stop this bombin' shit and then ... Well, hey, problem solved, dude."

"Yes, well, that's certainly a unique approach, I must say."

"Gotta be done, dawg."

"Oops, I do believe that microphone's on, George."

"You worry too much, Tony-Boy. Hey, there's Vladmeer ... Whassup, Pooter Pants?"

"Oh ... Hello, George."

"Hey, ja hear my speech on how freedom's on the march in Iraq? A little democracy might be good for you Russkies too, ya know."

"George, if your idea of democracy is what's happening in Iraq, we'll take a pass."

"Mmmph. A pass? I'll show ya a pass. Here ... catch this roll. They're mmphing good."

"No thanks, George."

"Whatever, man. Peace out. I gotta get home and veto me some stem-cell funding."
