'Dinner for One' featuring Sarkozy and Merkel [VIDEO]

'Dinner for One' featuring Sarkozy and Merkel [VIDEO]
(Satirist Udo Eling teamed up with state broadcaster ARD to rework the original, putting the French president's head on butler James' body, and the German Chancellor's head onto the body of Miss Sophie.) First performed by British comedians Freddie Frinton and May Warden--the most watched TV program in history, shown every New Year's Eve in Germany and other countries--now renamed "The 90th Euro Rescue Summit" or "Euros for No One."

True to the original, Mr Sarkozy, the butler, drinks for all his mistress' guests and gets increasingly inebriated, prompting Mrs Merkel to say: "Nicolas, think of your credit rating!" - a reference to the downgrades looming over France from international ratings agencies. (The Telegraph)
