The actual caption:

Japan's Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi tries out a painless injection needle during his inspection tour of small enterprises in Tokyo on Wednesday January 18, 2006. The Japanese leader took time out from his busy schedule to visit two small enterprises, including one that manufactures an injection needle with a diameter of 0.2 mm, believed to the world's finest. (AP Photo/Kyodo News)

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.
