Thoughts of a pervertive Greek mind

Let’s have a look first at the latest news…

Chatty lawmakers rack up million-euro phone bill
Posted Tue Oct 23, 2007 11:13pm AEST

Talkative Greek lawmakers have saddled parliament with outstanding phone bills of one million euros ($A1.59 million), news reports said.
Greek newspapers reported that the landline and mobile phone call bills were accumulated over the last 20 months, at a time when parliament had already decided to honour older debts worth over 32 million euros ($A51 million).
The 300 deputies in parliament are entitled to an annual allowance of 13,500 euros ($A21,500) for fixed calls and 3,000 euros ($A4,700) for mobile phone calls, which they routinely exceed, Eleftheros Typos daily said.
Greece’s parliament has not commented so far. The office of parliament speaker Dimitris Sioufas declined to confirm or deny the reports.
“The speaker has nothing to say,” an aide told AFP, adding: “This is not the first time this issue comes up.”
It is currently unclear whether the new one million euro debt will be covered.

Yeah,they’re the SAME politicians who declared that they can’t rise people’s salaries because the Greek state is poor!!!
The same politicians that a month ago (the elections took place Sep 16th) were promising us literally everything

But the (very) latest news will make all of us happy!!!

Back-seat toilet to end mishaps in traffic jams
Posted Wed Oct 24,2007

A Japanese manufacturer has developed a new portable toilet for cars, equipped with a curtain for privacy and a plastic bag to collect waste.

The Kaneko Sangyo Co, a manufactuer of plastic car accessories, unveiled its new design to help people stuck in traffic when nature calls.

“The commode will come in handy during major disasters such as earthquakes or when you are caught in a traffic jam,” a company official told reporters, according to Kyodo News.

Japan is situated on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” and accounts for about 20 per cent of the world’s earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater.

Drivers stranded by tectonic movements or stuck in traffic jams simply assemble the cardboard toilet bowl, fit a water-absorbent sheet inside and draw round the curtain.

The product is small enough to fit inside a suitcase, the company said.

But prospective customers will have to hang on until November 15 when the firm begins selling the new product online.

That’s totally irrelevant most of you we’ll be thinking… BUT IT’S NOT!!! The Greek state paid 600.000 euros for toilet paper last year!!! That’s 2.000 euros per deputy (600.000 euros / 300 deputies)! So,since they’ll have the ability to fulfill their natural need in their vehicles in the near future (and they constantly move for the needs of our country),the Greek state will pay way less for toilet paper and save the money for the phone bills! So our proud deputies will continue their Godsend work…

Thoughts of a seriously perverted Greek mind…
