Pythagoras stripped naked after all these years!

Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, is being forced out of his cave on Samos because he cannot afford the rent although he's been dead for roughly 2500 thousand years!

Greece is in such financial turmoil and authorities on the wonderful island decided enough is enough and evicted his ghost after realising he hadn't paid a drachma in tax since retreating with his 'Numbers Sect" into a cave and never reappearing.

His numbers philosophy accepted by Greek banks and multi-billionaires, who refuse to pay taxes too, is in many intellectuals eyes, the root cause of all Greek problems. They have decided to support the exorcism as a symbol of Greek promises to Angela Merkel (not an intellectual BTW) to milk the "little people" as much as possible and allow Greek VIP's, millionaires, corrupt politicians and other low life to export their riches to the Bahamas, tax free.

Many tourists escaping Greek beaches on Samos in fear of being attacked by boat loads of African, illegal immigrants, decided to climb up to the cave in the hope of seeing the ghost of Pythagoras being arrested! Sadly, they were disappointed because the authorities running the cave decided to quadruple the entry prices and then did a tax-free runner with the proceedings because the banks were closed.

As for Pythagoras's ghost, it was last seen swooping over the Reichstag in Berlin spitting bolts of lightning at Angie, meaning Greek mythology is immortal especially here on The Spoof!

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