Caption Competition: Greek PM Meets His Economic Inspiration


What could the Greek PM and Gordon Brown have to say to each other? I'll kick things off...

A two way bubble saying: "I learnt everything I know about economics from you".

BROWN: I was told to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, but you haven't got anything to bring.

We're all fucked. I'm fucked. You're fucked. Both countries are fucked. It's the biggest cock-up ever. We're both completely fucked.

Paul Owen said...

Yes but Gordon, how do you keep a straight face when you're saying it?

Brown is saying, "My plan is to sell the Port of Dover, then Kent and Sussex in blocks of 100 hectares."

Actually Brown's inflation-control policy was copied from Albania, where it resulted in the insolvency of the two largest banks (both state-owned). So,
"Don't worry about the economy: just organise rioting in the streets and you'll be OK"

"Never mind Gordon, we will still welcome you when you come to Greece - just don't mention the IMF."
