8/7/2013: EU-US 'snooping' scandal and a bowl of petunias?

Priceless European fake 'indignation' stuff via EUObserver headlines:

Dirty little secrets of Berlin?
"US snoopers were 'in bed' with German intelligence"
As one might say… oopsy...

And undeterred by own laundry showing up all over the front yard, the EU presses on:
"EU-US counter-terrorism pacts at risk over snooping affair"
Enter the drums...

and on…
"Kroes: Spy scandal could harm US Cloud firms"
Enter even heavier drums…

But wait… what's that?
"MEPs slam US snooping, amid revelations France does the same"
a bowl of onion soup?..

Or a bowl of petunias…
"France and Germany eat their words on US trade talks"

Looks like the latter:
"Barroso keen to start US trade talks despite spy affair"

So recall how “Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.”

I wonder when the sperm whale is going to show up?..
