EUROZONE / GERMANY / FRANCE : Berlin TV Show Satirizes "Merkozy."

                                        To Read : BBC

      Every year on New Year's Eve...German TV airs a program called 'Dinner For One'.
      It features a waiter getting drunk with his demanding employer.
      Now it has been redone...as an 18 minute satire...that features German Chancellor Angela Merkel as the tough mistress...and French President Nicolas Sarkozy as her tipsy servant.
     While available here only in German...and while my German language skills are rusty and suspect...the concept, actors' body language and some knowledge of recent Eurozone dynamics will still, I think, provide loud guffaws...for the clever mocking.
