There is nothing more telling that something has gone mainstream than seeing it as a skit on SNL. Facebook movie, Martha Stewart imprisonment, airport security scandal – pick the topic and if it’s hot, it’s been exposed in an often crass and typically hysterical way, on SNL.

I am moderating our Plight of the PIIGS panel this week with esteemed panelists Charlie Fell, Jamie Coleman, Bob Iaccino, and Spencer Beezly, and it reminded me of the Strauss-Kahn Eurozone Crisis skit that SNL opened with back on May 21st.

It depicts ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn at Riker's Island. In the skit, two other inmates talk about their feelings about the eurozone crisis including their views on what Germany needs and why Spain needs something different. I won’t spoil the fun for you – watch it for yourself.

While it’s a great parody and made for a good laugh, it also amplifies the dire and desperate situation we face in the eurozone. I am looking forward to Thursday’s webinar and to hearing what the panelists have to say about what’s next for the eurozone. Be sure to tune in for what promises to be a lively debate.
