Jean-Claude Juncker's Continental System

Mr. Juncker's Continental System Cohorts of Luxembourg, arise! Keep the Russians from the Rhiine. Hosts of Luxembourg, en garde, Confine the British to the brine. "We'll do without America," says Merkel with aplomb. Warily one has to ask, "Whose finger's on the Bomb?" Français ou Allemand? Que parlons-nous, messieurs? Until this issue's settled It's Anglais, faut de mieux. A toast, my brave companions, on the path we march along. Not bourbon and not whiskey but cognac Napoleon!
