To some it's just money. For others, it's the fabric of a whole nation

The United States of America has been given the green light to be the eighteenth nation to join the Euro. As soon as Estonia has surrendered its sovereignty and become a toady to European capital, it will be the turn of the USA.

President Obama has decided to take drastic action in order to heap the blame for economic failure on to someone else-proving that he has learned the arts of statesmanship.

The EU is hoping to bring Estonia into the Euro in a bid to detract from the total balls up surrounding the Greek bail out. Sadly, this plan is about as smart as Gordon Brown ordering new curtains for 10 Downing Street.

The Euro is a single currency designed to break down borders within Europe and merge nation states through shared economic turmoil. Helmet Knob, a German banker said "If we can get more states in to the Euro we can take over the world. Today Estonia, tomorrow Latvia! Hitler was right, he just didn't know how to go about it."

Americans were concerned that they might be surrendering some of their hard won national sovereignty by joining the Euro. They were being reassured by special Euro envoy Neil Kinnock, who told them "I am all for a single world currency in a single currency way. In the sense that it is one currency. Singly. In one. For the world. The whole, wide world...." Sadly we had to cut Lord Kinnock short. For no reason. We just had to do it.

Estonians were in the streets celebrating last night. One said "We won't be able to afford to celebrate again, so we are making the most of it now."

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