    how the Greek bail out realy works

    got it in my mail and want to share, i think it is really good .though, could it work like that?
    It is a slow day in a little Greek Village. Beating the rain is down and the Streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in Debt, and everybody Lives on credit. On this day Particular A rich German Tourist is driving through the Village, Stops at the local Hotel and lays A 100 Note on the desk, telling the Hotel Owner he Wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to Pick One to Spend the Night. The Owner Gives HIM Keys and some, as soon as the visitor has Walked upstairs, the hotelier grabs the 100 note Runs and next Door to Pay His Debt to the Butcher. The Butcher Takes the 100 Note and Runs down the Street to repay His Debt to the Pig farmer. The farmer Pig Takes the 100 note and heads off to pay his bill at the supplier of feed and fuel. The guy at the Farmers' Co-op Takes the 100 Note and Runs to Pay His Bill drinks at the Taverna. The publican Slips Along the Money to the local Prostitute drinking at the bar, WHO has Also Been facing hard Times and has had to Offer HIM "Services" on credit. The Hooker then Rushes to the Hotel and pays off her Room Hotel Bill to the Owner with the 100 Note. The Hotel proprietor then places the 100 note back on the Counter so the rich Traveller Suspect Will not anything. At the moment Traveller That comes down the Stairs, picks up the 100 Note, States That the rooms are not Satisfactory, pockets the Money, and leaves Town. No One Produced anything. No One Earned anything. HOWEVER, the Whole Village is now out of Debt and looking to the future with optimism A lot more. And That is how the bailout package works!
