Here people work until they are 67?

You know how it is, the best thing to do with good advice is to pass it on.

And that’s just what Germany’s Bild newspaper did during a lecturing session to Greece the other day. The newspaper basically called on the Greeks to adopt something they called “a more Germanic work ethic” in an open letter to Greek prime minister Papandreou.

What a joke. This is hilarious. This is hilarious because the Germanic work ethic is a hilarious myth.

My favorite lecture claim here? The one about Germans working until they’re 67. Ha, ha, ha. Every German knows that this is a big fat lie. But hey, if it makes you feel good to believe in such Märchen (fairy tales), whatever.

Anyway, you go Greece. Actually what I mean is that you’d better get going while the going’s good.

Germans tell Greeks to rise earlier and work harder to avoid financial crisis
