    The penguins from the original poster are here the two seagulls that appear in the logo of the political party they belong to. The plane flying over the lion's hat is related with one of Spain's most peculiar and bizarre cases of squandering.

    Well, just a few:  He's currently the President of Españistán.

  • The Paper
    The Paper is about   FatimaGate, the Spanish news leak scandal of 2012.
    Fátima Bañez, the Labor Minister (who believes the virgin will get us out of the crisis) disclosed the opposition's labor force adjustment plan (ERE); the leak was published by the most conservative and biased newspaper in the country. 
  • ERE means labor force adjustment. PSOE is the party. The Puppy is the Presidente.
  • Untouchable
    Dictator Francisco Franco is Untouchable.
    From 1939 his rule was law. Franco’s Spain displayed all the usual characteristics of a right wing dictatorship. All opposition was ruthlessly dealt with; the nation had to endure the activities of a secret police force; all the aspects of politics that would have been taken for granted in Europe, such as fair elections and political opposition, were not tolerated in Franco’s Spain. He died in 1975.
    Even today, the crimes committed during his dictatorship in Spain cannot be investigated. Ask Garzón what he thinks of it. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8682948.stm
