Last Friday, the German satirical party, “Die Partei,” was officially approved by the agency responsible for overseeing German federal elections as one of 38 parties eligible to run. ”Die Partei” (“The Party“) promise to build a wall around Germany to tackle globalization, financial market turmoil and the euro crisis, limit management pay to 25,000 times the ordinary worker’s pay, put Angela Merkel in a cage and “frack“ Germany’s environment minister to release the “tremendous energy resources” within him if they come to power in the upcoming German election.
