Those Euro membership criteria are getting more demanding

It may be that things look so grim at each meeting of Eurozone finance ministers that any source of levity is welcome. But what exactly Jean-Claude Juncker of Luxembourg was doing with the hair of Jyrki Katainen of Finland, we don't know.

Note to Ireland: Mr Juncker doubles up the jobs of finance minister and prime minister, while Mr Katainen doubles up the job of Deputy PM and finance minister. It doesn't have to be that each ministerial job description merits a separate person, salary, pension, car, and staff.
