Madame Soula

Greece is in turmoil and its economy is on the verge of collapse.  Salaries and pensions have been cut and people are struggling to make ends meet.  In the struggle to survive, funds for schools and amateur sports clubs have dried up.

But thanks to a local brothel owner, the soccer club in the town of Larissa, Greece, is still playing.  Madame Soula, the 67-year-old owner of the Villa Erotica, is helping fund the team.  Her only requirement:  the team must practice in pink uniforms.  Not very manly, but then this is soccer.  You know, the game where players who are brushed by an opponent's pinkie collapse onto the field in agony.  Perhaps it's fitting after all.

Anyway, Madame Soula does not confine herself to charity for the footballers.  She also bought a copy machine for the local grade school, which was returned when school officials discovered that Madame Soula ran a brothel.  I'd be curious to know how many of Madame Soula's detractors have availed themselves of her services.
