Rufus T. Firefly set to be Greece’s PM after Papademos bails

Now that reports from Greece are suggesting that Great Greek Hope, Lukas Papademos – the man who took Greece into the euro in the first place – is refusing to do the honourable thing and replace Giorgos Papandreou as prime minister, as was widely reported and expected, Greece is now left with three choices for national saviour.

They are: 

1. Ayios Nektarios;
2. Me;
3. Rufus T. Firefly; and
4. Ex-king Konstantine (unemployed since 1974).

The obvious choice is 2, Rufus T. Firefly. I’ve been stressing his suitability ever since this crisis broke out and I think it’s about time I was taken seriously. Please see video above in order to appreciate Firefly’s particular virtues and what he could do for our beloved country, Freedonia a.k.a. Hellas.

I can just imagine it ...

Rufus T. Firefly: [To ECB] Now, how about lending Greece twenty billion euros, you skinflints?

ECB: Twenty billion euros is a lot of money. We'd have to take that up with the IMF.

Rufus T. Firefly: Well, in the meantime, could you let me have twelve euros until payday?

ECB: Twelve euros?

Rufus T. Firefly: Don't be scared, you'll get it back. I'll give you a 90-day Greek bond. If it isn't paid by then, you can... keep the Greek bond.

Wow. No Greek plan, not even the ability to find a front man ...
