A vice-presidential overshare...

Embedded (heh heh) in an otherwise mundane article about everyday life and security protocols in the White House, I stumbled across the following three rather startling paragraphs:

At one time, the President and Vice-President were given three-inch-high models of the Washington Monument * to put beside their beds. They had simply to knock them over to summon the guards.

But the models were abandoned after Vice-President Dan Quayle - noted for being clumsy - knocked his over late one night while making love to his wife.

In seconds, the door burst open, the lights went on and Mrs Quayle was thrown out of bed to the floor as bodyguards flocked around her husband to ensure his safety.

Boom chicka-chick-a wah wah...

With this mental image seared in your brain, please resume your normal daily activities.

* For those of you unfamiliar with U.S. landmarks, the Washington Monument:
