Reuters photos of Georgie writing a note asking Condoleeza Rice if it is possible for him to use the little president's room during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York.

Unfortunately, there was no photo of the note from Condi reminding the president to flush and wash his hands.

UPDATE: :::Rick Klau wants your captions.

UPDATEII: They're real. From Editor and Publisher:
The photo, which appeared on Reuters' official photo site, was quickly published all over the Web, though dismissed by some as a likely photoshop special. Others suggested that surely someone must have hacked the Reuters site. But a Reuters spokesman on Thursday told E&P the photo was legit.

"The photographer and editors on this story were looking for other angles in their coverage of this event, something that went beyond the stock pictures of talking heads that these kind of forums usually offer," explained Reuters' Stephen Naru. "This picture certainly does that."
Does anyone else get the feeling that Bush Inc. has lost its handle on the press?
