Beware Of Greeks Bearing Bonds

Greek Olympic triple jumper Voula Papachristou was expelled by Greece from the London Olympics for tweeting, ""So many Africans in Greece at least West Nile mosquitoes will eat homemade food." She might as well as uttered the truth: So many blood-sucking Greek civil servants and blood-sucking illegal African immigrants - it's a wonder that more of our athletes don't resort to Epogen in order to reach their apogee.
Given her prowess as a Track Athena, it's not surprising that her picture shows her to be something of a Papakouros below the neck, but many have no doubt been astonied by the lack of melanin in her mane. As to whether her "cuffs and collars match," (escutcheon tip to James Bond) only her intimates and hairdresser knows. There are reasons to suppose that the ancient inhabitants of Hellas were, as a beer-drinking Kraut might spout, more Helles than Dunkel. It was no accident that Colin Farrell, over-acting to a fare-thee-well, chose to live his one life as a blonde in the Macedonian person of Alexander Magnus. Some members of the Kalash tribes (believed to be descendants of Alexander's army)of Afghanistan, are blue-eyed and blond. They have managed to survive in an Alpine-like fastness, although they have suffered under the Taliban and their Kalashnikovs.
While some Mediterranean civilizations might have some roots (something not quite to dye for) in ancient Keltic and Germanic peoples, I wouldn't go as far (contra "Black Athena" claims) that said Northern Europeans had much to do with the monuments of the Nile Valley ala Ex septentrione Luxor. Before leaving Greece (as did Helen with, as was famously said in the movie referenced above, "the Trojans"), I should mention a cautionary tale (or chalk talk of the stuff of the white cliffs of Dover or perfidious Albion) in the cable rebroadcast of the BBC Two's episode of The Country House Revealed tonight which covered the built-out-of-chalk Marshcourt, the former residence of Herbert "Johnny" Johnson who had to sell the Edwardian playhouse (where he had once held court) on account of a disastrous attempt to recoup his Depression Era losses by buying Greek bonds.
Your descendants may well wonder why after the 9-11 act of war, the US did not immediately seize the Saudi oil fields (HF may have proposed that already) and put a KA-BAR (said to be derived from the partially legible "Kill a bear" on a testimonial letter) knife to the throats of the many princes and princelings of the peninsula until they coughed up their trillions of ill-gotten gains. Mecca and Medina should have been flattened to make way for a parking lot, hog rendering plant and a saloon in which ransom-averse Saudis (described by HF as all daggers and dishdashas) are Wahhabi-bear-baited against one another.
I'm tickled pink (not be confused with being Petra-fied by a rose-red city half as old as time) that some knives (known generically as KA-BAR) were manufactured by the Camillus Cutlery Company and while I don't believe that Israel should (see the outlandish charge made by many Muslims) spread from the Nile (the Copts should be given a Land O' Goshen along its banks; pace a suggestion in an NER comment, they are too numerous to be absorbed by Israel) to the Euphrates, just as Rome was reclaimed from the Gauls, the said sandy Saudi Arabian peninsula should be returned to the ancient tribe which has already made the desert Bloomingdale's.

Marcus "Fast & Furius" Callimus has mangled and misappropriated the classic, "The Jews made the desert bloom, but never pay retail."
The tents are folded up
The Dodge Caravan moves on
Made possible by government investment
The Camel wins the beauty contest
And is sodomized
The dogs bark
Who let the dogs out?
Roof, roof, roof
Romney puts a dog on the roof
And Obama eats it
The Jews made the dessert Bloomberg
Who says, "Take this 32 oz. cup from my lips"
Barack kibitzes the kibbitzum:
"You didn't build that"
Don't Know When To Fold 'Em,
Eric "Hold 'Em" Holder,
The Nation of Cowards
