A comparison between the DVDs published in the U.K. (2004) and in Germany (2011) shows different endings, apparently the Australian/worldwide Edition and a special version for the USA. The worldwide Edition ends with Sir Les Patterson getting awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo. After an eulogy has been held in his favor, Sir Les, drunk like a skunk, staggers to the speaker's platform, looses some pages of his speech, bows down and farts, somebody is lighting up a cigarette and the whole story ends like is had begun. In the U.S. version, a reception is held for Sir Les by Mrs. President at the White House. Surrounded by her guests, she praises her interior designer for redecorating her domicile. Than she excuses herself for seeing the lavatories. Meanwhile the gay designer boasts of his idea of having colored the Blue Salon all in pink and that even appropriate toilet seats have installed at the lavatories this very morning. Getting suspicious about the seats being contaminated, Sir Les rushes into the ladies and comes back with a bewildered, but happy Mrs. President on his arms and the invited crowd applauds.
