Athens – Greek post-doc Gianni Moustakas, revealed to The Allium today that was offered the option by the Greek government to either be paid by check or to be paid by a small bag of magic beans and he is delighted to say that he has chosen the “safer option” of a bag of magic beans.
“There are seven lovely beans in the bag this month”, said the cell biologist, “and I hope they grow into a giant beanstalk”.
“Next months, they say that they will pay me with a really, really special goose that lays a golden egg”.
“It’s funny how these special geese look like small supermarket chickens, isn’t it?”
“I’ll have to hide all these from the giant Ogre, Angelos Merkolos.”
