For those that wonder where that came from: it was an Eddie Murphy skit. Basically he is talking about how when he was a kid he got in big trouble – totally his fault – and then wished his mother would get hit by a bus and die. Something like that seems to be playing out in Europe, where the Germans, in the role of the parent, are imposing austerity measures of the Greeks that have been living well beyond their means and as spoiled brats, and coming the Greeks don’t like it and are reacting childishly:
(Reuters) – The dark shadow of German-driven austerity measures squeezing Greece has revived historical enmities and evoked comparisons to the massive destruction of the Mediterranean country at the hands of Nazi Germany over 65 years ago.
Cartoons have sprung up depicting the European Union’s “troika” as ferocious soldiers in World War Two German uniforms, and some Greeks are beginning to resent the German tourists flocking their ancient sites.
The staff cartoonist for the liberal daily Eleftherotypia has drawn dozens of such cartoons in recent months, often showing Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos giving the Nazi salute “Sieg Heil” (Hail Victory) to a soldier.
“I used the German uniforms symbolically,” cartoonist Stathis Stavropoulos told Reuters through an interpreter.
Yeah, the Germans are the bad guys here for sure. How dare they tell collectivist shitheads that believe German tax payers should just shut up, and pay up too, so their lazy ass, big government loving, do nothing selves can keep doing more of the same. And the sad thing is that the Germans will pay for all of it now and again later, because these Greeks do not plan to change anything. The Germans might be catching on. But if they stop paying the EU is toast. Score another one for the collectivists and their running out of other people’s money!
