There's an early morning business programme on BBC radio called 'Wake up to Money'. This morning (5 October) they had fun with the Greek crisis. The kick-off was an item (unrelated to the crisis per se) about a topical UK court case involving a pub landlady offering cut-price satellite TV to her customers via a Greek decoder rather than with SKY. This section of the broadcast starts at about 00.16.15. One of the wags remarks that they will have the   '...commentary in Greek and ...they might not be able to add the score up properly'. Immediately the subject moves to footballers' wages; cue laughter at the remark about these wages being in drachmas. After a short break there are witticisms about Greek yoghurt and taramasalata.
