Spanish Shop Owner Finds Homer Simpson Euro

MADRID — "A Spanish sweetshop owner was counting cash in his till in the city of Aviles when he came across a coin bearing the likeness of Homer Simpson instead of Spanish King Juan Carlos, Reuters reported.

"The coin must have been done by a professional, the work is impressive," Jose Martinez told Reuters.

The carver didn't touch the other side of the one euro coin, displaying the map of Europe, Reuters reported.

"I've been offered 20 euros for it," Martinez said.

Reuters reported no other coins bearing the likeness of Simpson have been found in circulation."

All you need to know about the longterm viability of the Euro is encompassed by the simple fact that the Spanish version features a King. That's showing some modern moxie there, fella's. Next would-be dictator (cough, scary moslem) that comes along pulverizes the yet again disarmed Europeans and its off to beg for help from Uncle Sugar yet again. That's of course unless we've also succumbed to the horror that is islam and lose our testosterone as well.
