Angela Merkel is the chancellor of Germany.
She always attracts attention wherever she goes, not because of her great beauty or sparkling wit, but because of everyone's admiration for her large checkbook. Greece has offered to mind her checkbook as she often visits there. Wherever she goes, Merkel is asked for her autograph, albeit on a check. Of course, the Nazi guilt trip card is always played, insuring at least one zero is added to the amount on a check.
