Greek Finance Minster Pawns xBox To Stave Off Default

26/09/11 -- Greek finance minister Evangelos Venizelosopadopalosados is understood to have pawned his beloved xBox over the weekend in an effort throw a bit of extra cash into the kitty to help stave off an impending Greek debt default.

"I got a very good price, it had lots of games with it including Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty," he said.

When asked what he would do if the EU/IMF was to approve a 50% Greek debt write-off, he said that he'd probably buy a Playstation 3 and FIFA 2012.
