Greece lightning? Even Zeus demands deleveraging, pardon, austerity.

I call bullshit..  That's a stock photo..  Didn't happen. I suspect this is a distraction for Greece not really making the Bond Maturity payment..

Thor is Norse! But still understandable pissed at the Frenchies!

Zeus is the Greek God of Thunder, I'd suspect him.

BTW - Who is the Greek God of pedantic nerds?!!!

As he dons his hoodie, he swears this oath:

In brightest day, in blackest night, No data shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship Google’s might, Beware my power…

Facebook’s blight!

Thor? You think your Thor now, wait until Merkel gets done flogging you...

How was the conferance?

It was just some R+R in the Emerald Isle....

Very nice, but pricey...

Needless to say driving on the LHS is "interesting"....

From what I saw, at least the Irish McMansions are not biodegradable...

You didn't stick around for the World Congress on Water, Climate & Energy 2012?

Why wasn't Bernanke on that plane ?

cossack55's picture

He only uses helicopters

HoofHearted's picture

The plane didn't go down, and we don't want to waste a good lightning strike just to miss taking the Bernank out.

Cdad is very long of God.

Long gods, lots of gods being made angry.

If you touch the money of kings, that barbaric relict,
kiss monotheism goodbye, this one god can no longer help you. Plenty of good old gods will lend you a hand though,
but they have no mercy and are unforgiving.

Well doesn't make much sense - if it was en emergency it should rather land nearest suitable airport. If enroute Berlin shouldn't be more than 30-40 min anyway...

Sark can always be called in to take his place in case of incapacitation.

I guess this answers the age old question: "Does God have a sense of humor?"

Bartanist's picture

Maybe he had this feeling that he would be Ron Brown(ed). Go with your gut dood.

Someone switched off all the lights in Berlin and directed his plane into the alps as he came in.

Ambulance driver - "So, you had a pretty big scare up there, huh?"

Hollande - "[chuckles embarrassingly] Oh yeah!"

Ambulance driver - "[smiles] You wanna see something really scary?"

At least Hollande can take a supernatural hint. Sarkozy would have kept going.

Forked tongue lightning.
