Today is Europe Day, and are we proud (Part 2)?

The EU has an anthem. 

It is Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, with the lyrics removed.

The original
German chorus has been removed to respect the fact that we don’t have a common
language in Europe, yet.

Strange that, as I thought that most us speak a version of English.  For example, the French Eurovision song contest entry this year has most of
its verses in English.

Mon dieu! C’est le monde merde!

Ah well, at least it’s not an Irish Turkey.

Maybe we shouldn’t be so proud after all?
