MOGOSOIA, Romania Solace for world leaders trying to enforce painful austerity measures: At least you're not running Romania.
Angry witches are using cat excrement and dead dogs to cast spells on the president and government who are forcing them to pay taxes. Also in the eye of the taxman are fortune tellers, who should have seen it coming.

All I did was mumble @#^&%^@# under my breath. I’m all out of mandrake but have plenty of chili powder and garlic that would have been just as effective, don’cha think.
Oh! Get this! Was on the phone this morning trying to get the credit card company to lower the interest rate (I pay it off every month but whatever). Anyway, they said that since Hussein has been in office and the economy has been so bad that they aren’t lowering anyone’s interest rates. Ah ha, it’s now Obama’s fault!!!
Let’s keep an eye on this tactic!
