The Greeks can't even afford toilet paper - tell the missus not to order the Greek salad on your week in Zante this summer

Greece is broke but help is at hand for the Hellenic people in the form of a charity single written by George Michael and featuring a number of stars of Greek origin.

Musicians Tommy Lee and Jeff Buckley will be joined by film and TV stars such as Jennifer Aniston and Tina Fey and are set to star in a video directed by Penelope Spheeris.

The song called 'Don't have Pita on the Greeks' has been penned by Michael (born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou) in an effort to raise awareness of the suffering of millions of Greeks, some of whom have so little money that they have been forced to eat tourists just to survive.

The charity single coincides with the news that Greece is being offered a 30 billion Euro loan by 16 Eurozone nations to help it pay off its mounting debts. The terms and conditions of the loan have yet to be finalised but the interest rate is thought to be around 5% over 20 years. Failure to keep up regular payments will result in the Greek islands being sold off to Hollywood who can then build big theme parks on their purchases, such as Mamma Mia Land or Captain Corelli's Mandolin World of Adventures.

The charity single will be released next week and is set to go to the top of the charts in both the U.S. and U.K. A benefit concert called Greek Aid will follow featuring some of the biggest names in pop and rock and will take place in Wembley Stadium.... car park by Stavros Kebab van.
