Germans unfairly snub lions
The company producing the mascot for this year's World Cup has declared itself bankrupt after the toy failed to score with consumers.

Nici paid 28 million euros ($36m; £19m) for the sole rights to "Goleo", a football-kit-wearing lion.
However, it seems to have scored an own goal by choosing a mascot that has little connection to Germany, whose national symbol is an eagle.
I propose we organise a boycott of German goods, and impose import duties on things like bratwurst and sauerkraut. In the interests of fairness, and showing that we're not racist, German beer will be subsidised.
