The Greek Reality Today...Maintaining Our Sense of Humour

Global Greek Humour:
Summing up The Reality in Greece 
Brilliant cartoonist Kostas Mitropoulos for daily newspaper Ta Nea 
(Thanks Viv V NZ for passing it on )

I have a Georgian helper for Yiayia
A lady from Albania for the house
A guy from Pakistan for the garden
My doctor is Syrian
My plumber Polish
My electrician Bulgarian
My creditors German
This way I am keeping the whole of Europe going
As well as the Middle East...
What more do they want?

Who said we Greeks couldn't laugh at ourselves? After all we invented satire and laughing at  yourself  is an art... Greek satirists have done it brilliantly for centuries...
