Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie

Okay, quiz question: without clicking on the links below or taking your mouse over them, tell me which of the two headlines below are of a story that's been made up:

Bush Acknowledges Racism Still Exists
Bush Quietly Rolls Back Iraq Death Toll To Zero

Er, sorry, maybe that was too easy?

And no doubt you've heard of the famous shoulder rub Georgie Porgie gave Angela Merkel recently. Much fuss has been made about it on the net, but from what I see in the video below, it seems to be just a playful moment between two people who seem comfortable with each other, as her smile after the event indicates. If she don't mind it...

Georgie Porgie should run into Zinedine Zidane somewhere and head-butt him, though.
