Michelangelo and Greece

London betting shops were now taking bets on whether or not Greece would soon leave the Eurozone.

Renfield R. Renfield always liked to bet on a sure thing so he decided to go down to the Set Enterprises Lab and communicate with Michelangelo the genetically created psychic lobster to see what signals the fifth dimension inclined crustacean was picking up on the question of Greece leaving the Eurozone.

As Renfield got down to the lab, his friend and fellow employee Amadeus Emanon was already there reading a book recently penned by Michelangelo’s creator Dr. Cadbury Rocher. The book was called Psychic Lobsters For Dummies.

Renfield walked over to Michelangelo’s tank and tapped on the glass.

“Michelangelo, can you hear me?” Renfield asked through the glass.

The lobster appeared to nod yes and also appeared to be covering his ears with his claws.

“Michelangelo, will Greece leave the Eurozone soon? What do your psychic antennae tell you?” Renfield queried, “If the answer is yes, tap once on the glass. If the answer is no, tap twice on the glass.”

Michelangelo tapped once on the glass.

Renfield shouted with glee with his hands in the air, “Yippee! I’m heading down to the betting shop to bet that Greece is leaving the Eurozone soon.”

Amadeus watched Renfield leave.

“Oh well,” Amadeus sighed, “if Michelangelo turns out to be wrong, at least I’ll know what book to buy Renfield for his birthday.”

He put aside his copy of Psychic Lobsters For Dummies.

. . .

Meanwhile in her office in Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was on her laptop.

She had just ordered a book from Amazon called Leaving The Eurozone For Dummies.

She was going to send the book to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras should the necessity arise.

To be continued.

    She should have sent him, “Running a Country into the Ground for Dummies” instead… asking for an author autograph…

      ROTFL ! šŸ˜€

      Good one, Nicholas!

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      If I could like Comments on my own blog on my iPhone 4S (which I’m unable to do for some reason), I’d have definitely liked that comment. šŸ™‚

      Although I do like all your comments, my friend. šŸ™‚

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Thanks! The feeling is mutual, as I love all your posts šŸ™‚

        I shared yesterday your brilliant Frasier one with my wife and my best man (both avid fans). We’re still laughing… šŸ˜€

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Thanks for the share! šŸ™‚

      Great to hear that you’re all still laughing! šŸ˜€

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Are you kidding? It was awesome šŸ˜€

        How long did it take you to write all that, anyway??

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      I started on Saturday June 6th and finished on Thursday June 11th of this month.

      Then it took me five days to thoroughly edit it and I finally posted it on Tuesday June 16th – which was also the 5th anniversary of my father’s death from cancer.

      Seeing as how my dad always wanted to see me write a television or movie screenplay someday, I did find it appropriate and fitting that this should occur on the 5th anniversary of his birthday into Heaven.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        So sorry to hear about your dad. He was right, by the way: you’re incredibly talented. I, too, hope to see you write a screenplay someday!

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Thanks Nicholas. šŸ™‚

      I too hope to see myself write a screenplay someday.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      I guess we’ll find out more after the European Union meeting in Brussels tomorrow.

    Goon-ish and really cool. Don’t stop the laughs roll on!
