31. Maybe the Greeks can

just sell their country, lock stock and barrel, back to the Turks.

The way things are going in Greece, I'd say in a year to eighteen months, if Erdogan shows up in Athens, and says, "Nice country; I'll take it! Here's, let's see..........100,000 Euro, some pocket lint, and I'll even throw in a donkey", a lot of Greeks at that point would raise their eyes to the heavens and say, "Thank you, God!" Yes, they may be patriotic, and some are even ultra-nationalistic, but let's face it.....you can't eat patriotic sentiment.

Many Turks I know wistfully dream of the halcyon days of the Ottoman Empire; I say, now's their chance.
