Details of punishments are keeping the attendees up late

BRUSSELS - Hate Brussels sprouts?

You'll really hate Brussels punishment for lack of budgetary discipline.

That's right.

According to our mole, a janitor at the conference, leaders of the European Central Bank have come up with the ultimate punishment for governments that do not pay back their loans.

Germany was pushing for firing squad.

The French were pushing the guillotine.

The Italians were were advocating a good working over with a knife.

But topping all these punishments is the one suggested by the home delegation in Brussels. Sprouts. Only sprouts. The people will be given only Brussels sprouts to eat,and nothing else until all the money is repaid.

Let them eat cake? Never!

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