After a day of high-level meetings on May 2, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie, were treated to a festive meal at the official residence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, complete with a side order of slipper dessert.
Israeli chef Segev Moshe served up a selection of chocolate pralines for dessert artistically arranged inside a shiny blue toilet slipper.
“It wasn’t even big enough,” said Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, “half of my food was hanging out the back of the slipper.”
“The only thing more offensive would have been a woman’s toilet slipper.”
Abe said if Israeli women spent more time cooking rather than making decorative slippers for chefs he might have received a more respectable meal.
Netanyahu incrementally encroached on Shinzo and Akie Abe’s dining space throughout the meal, continually resettling his plates onto the other side of the table.
