Spokesman: Greece to Go the Extra Mile to Appease Creditors

Athens, Greece --  A government spokesman today revealed that the Greek government would honor the Troika's demand that it transfer ownership of specified airports, ports, and other public assets to an independent privatization fund.  Moreover, as a gesture of good faith, the government plans to transfer certain additional assets not specifically identified in the Troika's proposal, notably a two-year old Palomino mare which had previously been the property of the daughter of an unidentified government minister.

"We offer this as a first step toward repairing relations between the government and our partners in the EU," the spokesman explained.  "Greece is committed to delivering on all of its commitments to the international community.  And a pony."
