Tales from the Coffeeshop

Our establishment has been temporarily shut down because the bank has begun foreclosure proceedings due to the extent of our non performing loans. Patroclos has flown to Washington to try and sweet-talk the IMF’s Delectable Delia into giving him a personal bailout. He did not think Angela Merkel would succumb to his charms – nor would he want her to. We expect a deal to be struck well before next Sunday’s edition after we will be able to offer our regulars a new MoU (Menu of Understanding), including the ‘Bailout Special’ – half a cup of skettos – the ‘Bail-In Special’ where the customer brings his own coffee, and a brand new dart board with a photo of the village idiot in place of the bullseye.
