The World Debt Crisis Explained, Almost

Two Aussie comedians (I think; I didn't Google their names) explain the world debt problem in their own inimitable way. The results are, let us put this as mildly as possible, discomfiting.

The, er, money quote: "How can broke economies lend money to other broke economies who haven't got any money when those broke economies can't possibly pay it back?"
