In a desperate attempt to stimulate growth in the European Union, EU Ministers have proposed Europe be renamed ‘China’ in the hope no one notices.
“China’s doing well so the thinking is if we call ourselves China, we’ll do well too. It’s not a great idea, but it’s the best we’ve come up with,” said the President of Denmark, “anyway I’ve got to go and learn how to cook some stir-fry!”
Europe’s leaders sat through various presentations about the ‘re-brand’ including the enlightening presentation from the UK entitled, “Why we are shit,” which demonstrated that Britain’s most innovative company was ‘Brian’s Cafe on Peckham High Street’ which had grown so fast in the last year it’s had to purchase 4 new plates.
The Eurozone crisis is so dire at the moment Europe’s leaders fondly remember being at war with each other. Many are hoping the latest talks will solve the crisis and shortly the Eurozone countries will be given their new credit card pin number as France and Germany have opted for a joint account after having been locked in hours of negotiations with a spotty bank account advisor from NatWest.
