Furniture Blogging Gary Locke, Tim Geithner, and Xi Jinping

What in the jumping jehosaphat is going on here:

Gary Locke, Tim Geithner, and Xi Jinping

Okay, I get it. They are modeling marshmallow furniture. No? I had better read the caption:

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner (C) and U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke (L) meet with Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing

What are they sitting on? Sort of a Little Miss Muffet meets the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland?

The Caterpillar, Alice in Wonderland

But with a Tea Party feel?

Tea Party

Oooops, not that Tea Party. This Tea Party:

Alice in Wonderland Tea Party

(Please do not discuss this other Tea Party which I was not invited to, harumph):

Johnny Depp, Michelle Obama, President Obama, Tim Burton, and the kids, White House Alice in Wonderland Party

Of course, Gary, Tim, and Xi have slightly larger chairs:

Lily Tomlin

Well, not quite that grande/venti. These are Tea Party chairs:

Just don’t forget the back support:
