Citizens, I’m not often super patriotic, but this week I’m being openly German. In case anybody missed it, the most bizarre, unbelievable match of football ever happened on Tuesday, and while it wasn’t played in Europe, a certain European team completely destroyed Brazilian football.
Yes, it’s Germany’s 7-1 hammering of Brazil. Germans: Breaking little boys’ hearts since 2014. Let’s see if they can sail through the final on this wave of enthusiasm.
Italy is reporting record numbers of boat migrants arriving on their coasts. Last weekend alone, more than 2600 people were rescued. Italy is in discussions with the EU about how to deal with the influx. Meanwhile, Amnesty International has criticized the EU’s migrant policy.
The good people of Switzerland are looking for a new national anthem because the old one is kinda meh.
And finally, some of the world’s earliest erotic graffiti have been discovered in Greece. Turns out people have always enjoyed penis drawings.
Until next week!
