An old man publicly kills himself in Greece. The austerity crowd shake their heads and wonder why people don’t appreciate the very hard work they’re doing to keep the bond vigilantes happy!

“The occupation government… has literally wiped out my ability to survive, based on a respectable pension which I had paid for during a 35-year period,” the pensioner said in an excerpt published in Greek newspapers.

“I find no other solution for a dignified end before I start sifting through garbage to feed myself,” he allegedly wrote in red ink.
