The Greece/Germany Dust Up Escalates
First, we had the Greeks blaming the Nazis for the current financial woes.

Now Zerohedge via Dow Jones is reporting that the Greeks will boycott German products. And they're doing it with panache:
In a sign of protest Inka...calls on all citizens of the country to boycott all German products and shops even if they say they are sorry...The distortion of a Greek historical statue of beauty and civilization, at a time when [the Germans] were eating bananas in the trees, is unacceptable and inexcusable from later civilized peoples.
Let's overlook the fact Germany wasn't growing bananas in ancient times and just appreciate this statement for its inherent magic. By the way, given Europe's cozy history, one might have thought there'd be more camaraderie at a time like this.
