PARIS – French President Sarkozy and German Chancellor Merkel have decided to merge countries!

Nicolas Sarkozy met with Angela Merkel today and in a joint press conference announced that the two countries will be “merging.”

“France and Germany have decided that for the good of our people, we will join together and form one new nation, that will lift all our citizens up.”

The dire economic condition of the Eurozone has forced countries to consider combining assets – even within the zone.  Italy is considering forming one nation with Greece.

Sarkozy and Merkel have been fast friends for years now.  That went a long way to helping speed along the merger deal.  Both countries will have to ratify the agreement, but Sarkozy and Merkel are confident that it can be done by October 1st, 2011.

Sarkozy and Merkel first wanted to name the new country – Merkozy or Sarkel – but cooler heads prevailed.  Instead, they are going to name the new country Franmany.   Merkel wanted to call it Germance – but Sarokzy didn’t like the sound of it.

Both nations will be adopting English as the primary language. “German and French are two dying languages,” said Sarkozy.  “We want to give our citizens an advantage  in the new world order.  All citizens of Franmany will learn English, Spanish and Mandarin.”

With the sovereign debt crisis deepening, the leaders of France and Germany had to come up with a creative solution – and forming a new country seems to be the answer..

Franmany will be adopting the U.S. Constitution for the new country.  “Why reinvent the wheel?” said Sarkozy.

Merkel said that “Germans will still be superior to the French, but it will be an internal battle now.”
