(Newser) – Bad: Being a waiter and dumping several glasses of beer on a world leader. Worse: It's caught on video. A 21-year-old waiter in Germany emptied his tray onto the back of Chancellor Angela Merkel last week, though she took it like a good sport, reports USA Today. The Daily Intel blog recalls George Bush's misguided attempt to give Merkel a massage and concludes that "it's not easy being Angela Merkel's shoulders."
