A Clinton Catnap

Running a country can be very boring work. Queen Victoria's husband Prince Albert was famous for falling asleep in public — especially during musical performances — but at least he was never caught on video. Former President Bill Clinton wasn't so lucky. When the bleary-eyed dignitary fell asleep during a 2008 memorial for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his mid-speech nap time was recorded for all the world to see.

Love the sudden "I'm awake!" head-jerk, Mr. Clinton. It didn't work for us in our 8 a.m. college classes, and it's not working for you now.
