This year people were looking forward to meeting that battered old Polish hero Lech Walesa (pictured above, eating the first of many tulips), but for some reason he failed to show up. The reason? Unknown, but I surmise it was because it was his moustache waxing night.
Here are some other people who failed to show up to this year's EDEN conference, and the reasons why:
Gordon Brown (Has lost his way completely)
Steve Wheeler (Recovering from battle wounds)
Barack Obama (No he couldn't!)
Oprah Winfrey (Too busy Twittering)
Ashton Kutcher (Too bust recruiting his new Twitter followers)
Andrew Keen (Not keen enough)
Steve Jobs (Lost in cyberspace)
Bill Gates (Retired)
Tony Blair (On a lucrative lecture tour)
Kim Jung Il (Spent his airfare on rocket fuel)
Saddam Hussain (Suspended without pay)
Susan Boyle (Having another make-over)
For all those who are at the conference this year, have a great time, and don't forget to blog/tweet what is happening to those of us who are absent! Have fun!
