#4 This is going to be amusing. Those tax collectors assume that the Greek police will be like German police, and obey without question, not realizing that the Greek police are little different or more disciplined than the people they will be ordering them to oppress.

#5 Basic introduction to Greece culture for Germans.
When a Greek holds up his open palm at you, it means "Go to Hell." Two open palms, "Go to Hell twice."
Two palms and the sole of a shoe, "Go to Hell three times." And two palms and two soles means, of course, "four times", but with great emphasis.
