Animal House Meets Euro Crisis

With Eurozone leaders tonight in Brussels rushing to disagree  about things that don’t matter — debt sanctions? all EU members? a revised treaty? really? — it is increasingly obvious that they live by one of my favorite lines from Animal House:

No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!


  1. Personally, I think the most apt Animal House quote regarding the Euro Debt Crisis is "You can't spend your whole life worrying about your mistakes! You fucked up… you trusted us! Hey, make the best of it!"

  2. Or, better still, "My advice to you is to start drinking heavily."

  3. Merkel: It's time that someone put their foot down. And that foot is me.
