EU-phemisms on the rise

The EU's audiovisual service Europe By Satellite already shares airspace on its new satellite provider with such niche gentlemen's services as Playboy TV and Spice Platinum (see previous BM coverage).

But now the European Commission has gone a step further.

For those who somehow missed the media flurry over this, the commission has launched its own channel on YouTube called EUtube.

And one of its inaugural videos is a montage of sex scenes from European films to celebrate, somehow, the continent's rich cinematic heritage. The clip, Film lovers will love this!, has attracted controversy.

But it also presents BM with a priceless opportunity to open the floor to EU-related porn puns.

Simply reach for your Penguin book of EU jargon, pick a random page, and see if you can find something feebly torturable into a smutty reference of sorts.

While BM perused the aforementioned clip, for example (research purposes only), a few sprang to mind:

"I always wondered what Ever Closer Union meant. That's pretty close."
"Aha, United in Perversity."
"Oof, he's no candidate for enlargement is he..."
"Well SHE clearly met the entry requirements."
"Is that what you call a horizontal strategy?"
etc

The prize of a copy of Debbie Does the EU and the highlights of European Erections 2004 to the best submissions.

    My personal creation:

    "European men only interested in Third Pillar affairs."

    I'm on a roll now:

    "EU bureaucrats seek third pillow affairs".

    P.S. Brussels really does need an equivalent red top tabloid to spill the EuFilth: "EU does not adopt Policy on *** Shock"... "My MEP is in the pay of aliens"..."EU Institutions run out of toilet paper"...
