This photo currently appears on the home page of The New York Times above a story about Sunday’s elections in Greece:
Yes, this is going to end well.
Hey you know how it is. Your Greek jalopy has broken down, so you set up a bunch of road flares and hope the EU-AAA comes to help.
As always, one question is most important and is still unanswered: does this mean I’ll be able to afford a house on Mykonos or Santorini?
It’s a Greek Going Out Of Business Sale! Everything Must Go!
It’s not just Greece. My neighbor was in Frankfurt about three weeks ago and could not leave her hotel because the streets were full of a hundred thousand protesters and several thousand police brought in from all over the country. They were protesting the banks and supporting the people of Greece and Spain.
Great. Europe in chaos. This well end as well as it did in 1812, 1914, and 1939.
Looks like a typical soccer match.
“This well end as well as it did in 1812, 1914, and 1939.”
Cheer up Doug, it could end like 1848. That would make you happy.
Now I know where I can get hot souvlaki.

Hehehe…fire! Fire! Heheh….heheh….Fire!
“While the artistic decision to reset its current production of Les Miserables from Paris to Athens was somewhat problematic, there is no doubt that the Athens Repertory Theater captured the full spirit of song such as ‘Do You Hear the People Sing.'”
Oh, wait? This isn’t a Caption Contest photo? Darn it!
My inner photographer can’t help but note that that is one cool shot.
@Steven L. Taylor: One cool shot with a lot of very effective PhotoShop
Must be Hogan’s Gyros…
Now, about that cutting of the US defense budget….
Looks like we may need what men and material we can muster. If history serves as a guide.
Also, it looks like Europe has given up on that whole AGW scheme
@Ron Beasley: It is a bit over-processed, methinks. The composition is great.
