did you get that one from Phil the greek.
Here's one on the same theme, excel. Its's been around a while, no pun intended:

It is a slow day in a small Greek Village.

The sun is beating down and the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a rich German tourist in a Mercedes is driving through the village, stops at the local hotel and puts a €100 note on the desk, telling the hotel owner he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.

The owner gives him some keys and, as soon as the visitor has walked upstairs, the hotelier grabs the €100 note and runs next door to pay his debt to his butcher.

The butcher takes the €100 note and runs down the street to repay his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the €100 note and heads off to pay his bill at the supplier of feed and fuel. The guy at the Farmers' Co-op takes the €100 note and runs to pay his drinks bill at the taverna. The publican slips the money along to the local prostitute drinking at the bar, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer him "services" on credit. The hooker then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to the hotel owner with the €100 note.

The hotel proprietor then places the €100 note back on the counter so the rich traveller will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveller comes down the stairs, picks up the €100 note, states that the rooms are not satisfactory for him as the bath rooms are too Greek and the views limited.

He pockets the money and leaves town.

The whole village is now out of a lot of debt and looking to the future with a but more optimism. Drinks all round at the Taverna.

And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how the bailout package works.
