A Loan Shark called the IMF.

Yes folks, it's ALL FOR YOU, isn't it?

"Why can't we all just... get along?"

"The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an international organization headquartered in Washington, D. C., of 188 countries working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world." (Wikipedia)

If Greece opts out of the EU in a forthcoming referendum it's economy may go bust before the Drachma finds a workable exchange value. Presently 40 percent of the population are subsisting below the poverty line and pensioners cannot get their pensions as the banks have limited withdrawals to only 60 Euros a day for which the elderly must join long queues outside the ATMs.

Dutch Foreign Minister and Eurogroup chairman Jerome Disembowel speaking on behalf of the the international banks glove puppet Troika, issued the following statement.

"We don't give a fly's fart about the human cost of Greece's austerity measures on its people. This is about money, not about people. They defaulted on on our loans. We want our dough back with interest, okay? Money is more important than people. What part of that don't the Greeks understand?"

Jerome made no reference at all to the fact that the source of all money... is... PEOPLE. That's because Jerome believes there is an independent self-subsisting entity called 'money' and an independent self-subsisting manipulator of it called 'Jerome'.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
