MaeSTRo: "Noble experiment for European Monetary Union has been a failure..."

"I'm too sexy for my body..."




Angela's under attack
PIIGS have the nerve to fight back
If nobody blinks
And this baby sinks
The world will start fading to black

The Limerick King






The EU is looking quite frail
It's members are starting to wail
The Grexit could make
The last pillar break
That's when EU coffin meets nail

The Limerick King




Rajoy is singing the blues
His country is starting to lose
Just do things their way
And Germans might pay
It's money he cannot refuse

The Limerick King


The Euro is sinking and spinning
The fate of their financial sinning
There is no way out
But some are in doubt
They still see the Euro as "WINNING!"

The Limerick King



EUROCRAT III---The Principle of Asininity

"Under the principle of asininity, in areas which do not fall within its exclusive incompetencies, the Union shall act only if and in so far as the idiotological paradigm of the proposed clusterfornicaton cannot be sufficiently sodomized by the Member States, either at central stratification or at regional and local heirarchies, but can rather, by cohesion of the scale or effects of the clusterfornication envisaged, be better FUBARed by means of acute Eurocratic sodomization at the Union level."

That Angie-pede is thoroughly disgusting and way out of line!

You should be very ashamed, now go to your room!*

Nice Friday Treat WB7 and thx ZH.

5 stars for the rajoy pic, banzai!

oh, and the stripper-cum-samurai reminds me that i've been neglecting the brunettes -- i mean to address that straight away.

great stuff, great one.

also, the syllogism at the end...recalls some esoteric studies from years ago.  anyway, heisenberg was possessed of an elegant mind, perhaps too elegant by half.  nevertheless, you will find the math underpinning your theory at the link below (take your time, it can get convoluted -- but, really, if you can handle the derivative funtion, it should be a stone-cold breeze)

oh how i wish i could participate at ZH everyday...but, alas, some of us must add value to society.

i think i'm gonna get me a patron -- hell, shakespeare had one, why not janus?

"...but janus is as the northern star, of whose true-fixed and constant-qualtiy there is no fellow in the firmament."

no one can stop us now/

cause we are all made of stars/

(damn, Moby! lay it down, son!)

slowly we're building/

i feel it in me/

They died with their boots on! or Armanis.

I once knew a woman from Berkal

who's nature was heterocercal

She swam to the edge

The funniest yet? ... I really can't tell anymore.

Maybe a return 'run' back to angie for the multi-back debt-monster? ... it's all about the flow ... of ... deposits ... right?

You're on a full ass tear today. LK too.

I'd nominate you for Time's 'Man Of The Year' or a Nobel Prize but I don't think you'd enjoy the company much.

Well done.

a dozen chuckles Banzai, thanks as always :)

Nice tie, Dimon. Hermès ?

Haute fiat couture. À propos.

Careless Whisper's picture


I thought you just made up the cuff links, but then I saw a real pic (i think) of Jamie Dimon wearing cufflinks with the Presidential seal on them. He was also wearing a red, white, and blue tie for his testimony. I think his attire deserves some serious aattention. Seems to me this guy is saying "I own the joint". The dewd has big fuckin' balls.

WB7, When are t-shirts available! Maybe a fb zuker hoodie!

Irony: you accept major cc. Just busting your chops, I'll charge my order to BoA.

WB7, very nice stuff, will buy my self a fathers day gift!

Wow!! Shaving with a samurai sword!

GENIUS! You're on the road to becoming legendary.

Your Eurosarkasm is beautifully expressed in cartoons that we haven't seen anywhere since the earlier decades of the last century.

This is political art and I wish someone would pick this up and put it on large canvasses. Europe is full of great museums where this art should be displayed for the public to see.

Something great will come your way, guaranteed!

I could have some of these reproduced by hand onto large canvases. There are very top notch operations in Thailand and China that specialize in reproductions. I'm sure some of these would look stunning.

But I'm not doing that unless someone else commissions it up front.

Jena's picture

I can definitely see how your work would look as large canvases.  Hand painted reproductions would be far preferable to giclée prints and also far more valuable, especially if you applied a little bit of the topcoat yourself.  At any rate, they'd be so very cool...

It's nice to know that your mother gets to see your work and how much it is appreciated!  (Howdy, WmBanzai's Mom!)

williambanzai7's picture

I would love to do it. It would sure beat having a Knkade in the basement.

Speaking of which...did you get a feel for the photo stock pricing yet?

ThirdWorldDude's picture

Excellent stuff as usual, WB7! I LOL'ed at Das Bailout and the 3 Pillars.

The graphic of Merkel & the PIIGS would be more effective if you use a pic of a human centipede. Try modifying this one, as the message is already in there   :)


williambanzai7's picture

I'll get around to it. I used the actual conceptual drawing first used by the directum.

Always love the naked hot chicks with samurai swords photos. ;)

WB7,  Can you cut the opacity on "Visual Combat" to 20% please?


williambanzai7's picture

There are a number of reasons why I arrange the compositions the way I do.

First, my Mom reads Zero hedge every day. Even though I'm an adult I am not exempted from this basic parameter.

Second, I don't want to screw everything up for readers who have company firewalls to worry about. Many people are already blocked from ZH at work and I don't want to be responsible for exacerbating the situation by creating a pornography excuse for the censors.

Lastly, sometimes the imagination works better than the pixel ;-)

In any event, you can find these easily if you use your imagination on google search.

You mean, Hi banzai's mom. "Waves (with embarrasing grins) from all of us".

williambanzai7's picture

No need to be embarrassed, good old' Mom is the one who keeps telling me to give the crowd racey images.

iDealMeat's picture

No..  With All due respect to you and your extended family.  We are at WAR!

All atemtps at censorship / classification of information at this time is tresonous and detrimantal to humanity.


My sincere apologies to your mother, and my Mom and Dad for that matter. But, the can has been

kicked to my generation. And I'm saying FUCK YOU, Fuck all of you corrupt fuckers.

If my mom and yours have to read a couple F-boms then so be it.. 

This is our world now.

reset is coming.

You asked for more titty, not F Bombs.

I have no problem chucking F Bombs and controversial material around both of my parents. However, I wasn't invited to post on this site merely by virtue of my curatorial talents with regard to scantily clad Asian warrior women.
