England and Norway settle currency negotiation medieval-style

Parody web site The Onion reports that, weary of sitting in business suits around a conference table, Prince William of England met and bested Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands in honourable jousting combat.

"Alack! I am bested, and fall heavy to the ground, and must therefore renegotiate the terms of special exchange between our nations when managing debts that predate conversion to the new EU standard," quoth Willem-Alexander as he tumbled from his steed, acknowledging his opponent the better man and meeting his fate with honour.

Thanks to THL Zsof of the Middle Kingdom for bringing us this Friday afternoon humor.
