The Euro Meltdown

How the contagion could engulf Europe

Worthless money for sale. 

Imagine the following image -

Imagine 14+ European countries all tied to each other (their ankles).

Greece falls over a cliff, pulling Iceland, Ireland, and Portugal.

Spain is slipping, Austria has stumbled and can't grasp onto anything.

Italy isn't even bothering - they are gesticulating.

Sweden is holding tight to the pants of Germany.

France is busy giving directions and only has 1 finger holding on to Germany.

Britain is standing behind a berm (otherwise known as Germany).

Germany meanwhile is trying to keep everyone from falling over the cliff into the abyss.

Greece meanwhile is in the abyss but dangling - and Greece is not behaving very well.  Greeks are squirming and hollering about their rights.

Germany is fed up.

Who's on First? Certainly isn't the Euro.
