In blog post entitled ‘Cirque de Grece’ (Greek Circus), Kostas Kallergis shares an Athens poster mocking the Greek Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, which is inspired by a poster for Cirque de Soleil's ‘Alegria‘ show.

In the poster, ‘Anergia’ rhymes with ‘Alegria’ and means ‘unemployment’ in Greek. Unemployment in Greece reached 23.6% [el] during the second quarter of 2012, according to ELSTAT figures.
