Greece Is Up For Grabs

Attention, anyone interested in a slightly used country consisting of 2 mainland peninsulas and thousands of islands? Going rate at present is about $1.2 billion. The up side is , the country has a uber amount of history (mostly in ruins) and beautiful views, the bummer is the 10 million or so occupants  don’t like paying taxes, rent or debts.

Greece has gone and done the unforgivable, proven that the whole Euro experiment was never going to work ….for some countries. Unable to pay their whopping loan, courtesy of  International Monetary Fund, they now find themselves abandoned by the Euro countries, without a brass razoo to their name. Awks. The government might have to dust off the drachma and refloat the worthless currency in order to function. They have already ordered an economic lockdown with banks shut and withdrawals limited to €60 a day at ATMs. But it is all a bit futile as most ATMs are as dry as a day old rusk.
