Dear Angela

Solstice 2011 33

A classic bit of holiday marketing on a bus stop in Lisboa: German Chancellor Angela Merkel is holding a bottle of Portuguese liquor, and the attached “gift tag” says:

Dear Angela,

Portugal is giving its best.

Happy Holidays!

Though I didn’t see any in Lisboa, here in Loulé some of the bus stops sport a Nicolas Sarkozy version. It’s good to know that even amid the suffering, there is (black) humor.

    Nice piece of humor, I hope it’s not self derision though, but a well-wrapped-up insolence. 🙂
    At least your President didn’t pretend and made his motto that you had to work more if you want to earn more….not sure we’re going to reelect him this year. 😉
    Then again, I’m afraid we’ll be forced to choose the lesser of two evils, as it was at the 2002 election. 😮
    We really are a bunch of freaky people, here… 🙂

    I think after last year and the last days she would´nt mind a drink or better a whole bottle of finest Portuguese liquor 😉

    It might even help with her parking problems 😉 –
