My mother sent a link to this image from the BBC News site.

It’s from the article about those German satellites. Sometimes Germany makes me think of a joke from Curb Your Enthusiasm— “It’s nice to be affectionate to something German, you don’t get the opportunity that often, you know.” Tell me about it, Angela Merkel. Here’s another image from the BBC News:

The headline? “Merkel says German multicultural society has failed.”

[At] the beginning of the 60s our country called the foreign workers to come to Germany and now they live in our country… We kidded ourselves a while, we said: ‘They won’t stay, sometime they will be gone,’ but this isn’t reality… And of course, the approach [to build] a multicultural [society] and to live side-by-side and to enjoy each other… has failed, utterly failed.

She also went out of her way to refer to Islam in a bit on the importance of thorough integration. “Anyone who does not immediately speak German is not welcome.”

I knew the 21st century had the potential to be a sack of shit the day Mitch Hedberg died.
