Poles have balls; or, Dana Carvey's doom recalled

Check out the cover of the latest issue of the Polish rag Wprost, which knocks German PM Angela Merkel with... well, her knockers.  (Click to enlarge.)


Spiegel Online has this to say:
It's not the first time the Polish weekly Wprost has gotten in trouble in Germany. This week, the cover depicts Chancellor Angela Merkel breast-feeding the Kaczynski twins. But it could have been worse, the editor-in-chief points out. At least they used a 21-year-old model. ...

It's not exactly how one expects to see German Chancellor Angela Merkel: The broad, friendly smile seems completely at odds with her open blouse, two bare breasts spilling out. On each breast, one of Poland's governing Kaczynski twins is affixed -- Prime Minister Jaroslaw is suckling on the left, President Lech has attached himself to the right. One of them is holding up the "victory" sign right in Merkel's cleavage. ...

The headline reads: "Europe's Step-Mother." As current holder of the EU's rotating presidency, Merkel, the magazine seems to be saying, is treating the rest of Europe like her step-children.

I think it's patently offensive, completely insane, and utterly (!) hilarious.  Not unlike the very first skit of the ill-fated Dana Carvey Show, which had among its cast Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, and Robert Smigel.
