By the balls: Tsakalotos ‘phallus-like’ signature hopes to end Greek economic misery

By the balls: Tsakalotos ‘phallus-like’ signature hopes to end Greek economic misery
Yanis Varoufakis’s decision to resign as the Greek Finance Minister caught most of the economic world by surprise. However, his replacement, Euclid Tsakalotos, might just become a household name, but not because of his economic policies.

Tsakalotos signature has caused much amusement as he signed a document to try and proved Greece with some debt relief… Take a look to get an idea why.

So... This is the signature of our Fin Minister here in #Greece. Tell me how we should feel... #GreeceCrisispic.twitter.com/w6TlsqkaSv
