Gallic shrug falls against the Spanish ‘manyana’

The European emotional currency markets were in turmoil today following the surprise devaluation of the Gallic shrug against a range of European cultural idiosyncrasies.

Manic trading in London, Paris and Frankfurt, saw traders shouting and screaming into their phones, while the Irish said ‘Ah well not to worry.’ The Craic remained strong despite rumours of a bail-out by the German Stentorian, while the Spanish ‘manyana’ remained strong against British Whinge.

Calls for the Standard European Foible have been resisted by the UK where the idea of the so-called ‘Joie De Gestalt’ has met with a national tut.
