GREECE TAKES OUT €100M PAYDAY LOAN FROM MONEY MART
(ATHENS)- In the wake of a seemingly bottomless economic freefall, Greece was spotted at a Money Mart negotiating a payday loan for the amount of €100M.
The troubled Mediterranean nation said they “just needed a bump to get us through until Friday. Because, y’know, the rent comes out on Weds and that always fucks everything up.”
Greece had heard about the Money Mart loans system from its buddy Ireland while the 2 were returning empties together at the bottle depot. Ireland has been a regular at the Money Mart for the past 16 months.
After Greece had provided bank statements and a pay, the country was cleared for its €100M on the condition that it is repaid on Friday before 5 pm with a 4% fee. There is a €25 charge if Greece’s cheque bounces.
Money Mart employee Brenda Chan was quoted as saying “These days we’re seeing more economically unstable countries using our friendly, efficient services with a smile! And, unlike the IMF, we only charge 4 bucks on the hun!”
Continued Chan, “Our services can really help out Greece, when used responsibly. I only hope they don’t blow the whole 100 Million on baklava and ouzo.”
