Rosenmontag!

It’s carnival time around the world! Here she is, folks, the lady you’ve all been waiting for, laid bare. The Chancellor of Germany (and latest Extreme Makeover recipient), Angela Merkel:

Der Spiegel explains the meaning of those markings on her nude form:

The float shows Merkel before (left) and after she has her “problem zones” lifted, such as the plunging economy and government debt, to name a few.

I guess this explains why her cleavage looks so unexpectedly good. Too bad the rest of Germany’s not looking so hot at the moment.

BTW, here’s a weird little bit of rare audio for ya:

“Rosenmontag”, by A Flock of Seagulls, from the cassette of their album, Listen. It’s not available on CD, to my knowledge anyhow.

    La Merkel? Deutschland boober alles? OMG that’s hilarious !!! I can’t tell you how much I would enjoy watching that German Thatcher go down like a lead balloon.Although I can’t wish that she takes the whole German economy down with her, because my big brother lives and works in Frankfurt. Damn…. 🙂

  2. Simon, the economy over there is already suffering (thanks to all those “responsible” fiscal conservatives and middle-of-the-roaders). She’s already sunk in their eyes, and so’s the Grand Coalition, but there probably won’t be another election anytime soon, because they have no fresh ideas as to who they’ll elect, and they’ll be damned if they elect an honest-to-Goddess leftist from Die Linke. Unfortunately, they’ve thoroughly absorbed what the Yanks came to teach them during the Occupation–namely, that anything to the left of the SPD is communist.
    Oh well, at least they’re not prudish about nudity. Or about making merciless fun of their politicians!
