I had mentioned previously the unusually close political relationship between geographic neighbours Australia and New Zealand.   But would you let your neighbours use your bathroom when their’s was broken?  I guess you would if they were getting dressed to meet the US President for lunch:

Speaking at a lunch in New York, [Australian Prime Minister] Kevin Rudd revealed that he had woken on Wednesday morning, New York time, to find [New Zealand Prime Minister John] Key and his Foreign Affairs Minster, Murray McCully, lining up in their dressing gowns to use his bathroom at the residence of the Australian ambassador to the United Nations. It seems that, in a very Brian-like moment, the plumbing in the Kiwis’ hotel next door had failed.”
