Greece v Germany

With just over a minute of the match remaining Archimedes cries out "Eureka!", takes the first kick of the ball and rushes towards the German goal. After several passes through a perplexed German defence, Socrates scores the only goal of the match in a diving header off a cross from Archimedes.

As the sketch closes, the Germans dispute the call; "Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx claims it was offside."

(The replay proves that, according to the offside rule, Socrates was indeed offside, but the sketch, nevertheless, states that the Greeks have won.)

As Greece news live: 'Basis for deal exists' as Juncker plays down Grexit fears ahead of today's eurogroup meeting plays itself out, the more things change the more they stay the same. John Ashton used to say that the reason people get so worked up about national stereotypes is that they are largely correct.
