Original ECB Batmanning Video

This is a short post today to share a tidbit I saw concerning the soon-to-be released ECB Batmanning video (metaphorically speaking).  The discussion starts around 3 minutes, 10 seconds in.

What is this?  I am not talking about the one and only successful batmanning video, the Original Batmanning Video.

In case you hadn't heard, in the near future, the European Central Bank is going to try to make its very own Batmanning video.  I am referring to whatever the ECB will attempt in order to bring about an "orderly" default in Greece. This will more than likely play out like, well, a failed batmanning video-with European flair. I have no other unique insights on this issue.

What exactly, is the goal of this post? My purpose is to give this word a new meaning.

to batman: intransitive verb, to cause a chain reaction of defaults in the Eurozone.

Special Note to All Prospetive Batmanners: Today, @Linsbrothers said on twitter that they had a meeting with the Dean (dum, dum, dum!).  Hey ECB, learn from the Original Batman Boilers, don't batman!

UPDATE: Martin Wolf has an interesting and concise piece at FT outlining this queston: to batman or not to batman? You may need a free Financial Times online account to view this-it is worth it. Thanks to @Nouriel for linking this!
