Solidaritätsbananen

Solidarity bananas.

For years, so probably decades, European soccer hooligans have been throwing bananas on the pitch as a racist insult, though sometimes they can make it clear the insult is nonracist yet still highly insulting.

Recently, a Brazilian player picked up one of these fallen bananas and calmly ate it. Now, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said, people are posting photos of themselves eating bananas as an anti-racist gesture. Italy’s new prime minister Matteo Renzi joined the meme, for example.

Achtung: this article contains photos of very good-looking men eating bananas.

Erfolgsmodelle sammeln

“To collect successful models.” E.g., the EU’s plan to implement Austria’s “youth guarantee” program to counter long-term unemployment in today’s young people. Looking around the EU and the world for government projects that work well, and then implementing similar projects in other countries.

Sheepish. “Sitting sheepishly like Tom Brady after the Superbowl.”
