Die Kuh muss vom Eis



I like stuff that makes sense in one Language and turns surreal in another. This was a quote by Jean Claude Junckers, shortly before the agreement with Greece was reached. I don´t want to comment on that, but it leaves a sour aftertaste for everyone involved and I feel sorry for the Greeks.

Die Kuh vom Eis bringen (get the cow off the ice)means to handle a delicate situation.
