Trouble at trough



source

Underling: Trouble at trough.

Ms Merkel: Oh no - what sort of trouble?

Underling: I don't know - Mr Selmayr just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the trough, that's all - I didn't expect a kind of Euro Inquisition.

CRASHING MUSIC – THE DOOR BURSTS OPEN.

Cardinal Juncker bounds in.

Juncker: NOBODY expects the Euro Inquisition! Our chief weapon is tedium...tedium and persistence...persistence and tedium.... 

Our two weapons are tedium and persistence...and ruthless inefficiency.... 

Our three weapons are tedium, and persistence, and ruthless inefficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Cause.... 

Our four...no... 

Amongst our weapons.... 

Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as tedium, persistence.... 

I'll come in again.
