Apparently the name of the game, re: tsunami donations, is now “my dick is bigger than your dick.”
One-upping the United States, France nearly doubled its aid pledge for tsunami victims to $57 million Thursday and briefly claimed the role as leading donor nation, after barbs from Washington about French generosity.
But Britain quickly topped France by more than tripling its donation to $95 million, and Sweden promised $75.5 million. Spain’s Cabinet approved a $68 million package, although about a fifth was in loans.
“I’m more generous than you are!”
