Europa bangt

Translation: The Netherlands have an election today. Europe is worried. (Here, Der Spiegel.)

Europe the continent is named after Europa the mythological queen. The German word “bangen” means “being worried” but sounds like… well, like a not very nice word for making love.


The picture is by Titian and shows the myth of Europa, who was “seduced” by Zeus while he was in the shape of a bull.

I’m so sorry.
