PARIS – French President Sarkozy and German Chancellor Merkel have decided to merge countries!
Nicolas Sarkozy met with Angela Merkel today and in a joint press conference announced that the two countries will be “merging.”
“France and Germany have decided that for the good of our people, we will join together and form one new nation, that will lift all our citizens up.”
The dire economic condition of the Eurozone has forced countries to consider combining assets – even within the zone. Italy is considering forming one nation with Greece.
Sarkozy and Merkel have been fast friends for years now. That went a long way to helping speed along the merger deal. Both countries will have to ratify the agreement, but Sarkozy and Merkel are confident that it can be done by October 1st, 2011.
Sarkozy and Merkel first wanted to name the new country – Merkozy or Sarkel – but cooler heads prevailed. Instead, they are going to name the new country Franmany. Merkel wanted to call it Germance – but Sarokzy didn’t like the sound of it.
