You Bunch of Tossers

This will be a big month for the future of the European Union. I've got a few things that I want to assemble into a post, but the blogjam is still in effect until I get this painting wrestled to the ground (yes, I'm still wrangling). But this choice clipping from Zact Ei's blogpost is as remarkably incisive as it is forboding (I don't know how to find the specific link on his site), zondag 5 juni 2005:

Meanwhile, some people in France, Germany and Italy are talking about getting out of the euro. This is rich. France and Germany bent the eurozone budget rules into a Moebius ring; Italy should never even have been admitted. (By the way: no, you're not getting out of the euro, you bunch of tossers. You'll bloody well stay in and pay us our 10 percent back first before you even get to bring up the subject again. Then you can run with your tail between your legs, because God knows there are no balls to get in the way.)

To summarize, I'm beginning to think they were right on that whole Holocaust and World War III prediction. It's what might happen if we don't send this bunch of adolescents who are supposed to be our leaders home pronto.

Ouch. That's going to leave a mark.

(The 10 percent is what the Dutch think they've been shortchanged in the conversion to the Euro.)

No offense to my pals in the three countries indicated, current events and all that.
