Have you ever wondered why Germany, Europe’s economic powerhouse, is contributing so much money to help Greece when even Greeks themselves are not contributing much more than going on strike, setting banks on fire and blaming Germany?
The following photo of German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble reveals how this came about.
Stuck in a particularly tricky Sudoku puzzle, Wolfgang Schäuble thought:

Let me find something easier to work on, for a change.
Ahhh, the Euro zone debt crisis and Greece’s insolvency! Yes, that’s it.
I’ll get back to this Sudoku after saving Greece.
And so it happened.
The Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos immediately had an open hand for his German counterpart.
