I’m not even sure why this is funny. Maybe it’s the context.
Was it put together by somebody in the United Kingdom, who is irritated by the he way Sarkozy and Merkel are turning a bad fiscal crisis into a worse fiscal crisis and trying to blame England? That’s possible, and we know the Brits have a good sense of humor.
Or was it put together by a German, who is feeling sanctimonious about his country’s relatively strong position (at least compared to other European welfare states) and is tired of having to deal with the French.
Or is it funny simply because it’s amusing to mock the French?
