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.

Greek Election Results

Greek Election Results

“European Union bureaucrats in Brussels and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have no doubt had to change their underpants after hearing the news that Alexis Tsipras’ anti-austerity Syriza Party have won yesterday’s national elections in Greece…” The BBC radio news announcer intoned.

“The thought of Angela Merkel’s underwear. Now there’s a mental image that really discombobulates the mind,” Renfield R. Renfield put down his copy of the unabridged edition of Machiavelli’s The Prince.

“Do you suppose Greece will leave the Eurozone?” Amadeus Emanon asked Renfield.

“They might,” Renfield replied as he imagined finding a piggy bank stuffed with old Greek drachma coins.

“All this talk of Greece is making me feel hungry for feta cheese, black olives and roast lamb,” Amadeus licked his lips.

“I suppose you feel like eating out at a Greek restaurant tonight,” Renfield checked a restaurant app on his iPhone.

“I do,” Amadeus nodded.

“That’s good,” Renfield smiled, “it will give me a chance to look at the menu and repeat that old line from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, ‘It’s all Greek to me’. ”
