“Yasssss Mom!!!!!!! Merkel kween!

On Thursday, Time announced it had named German Chancellor Angela Merkel its person of the year for her leadership amidst both the Syrian refugee crisis and the crisis of the Euro. Her progress in the latter area came so slowly and resolutely that Germans coined the word “merkeling.”

Merkel is, notably, the first woman to be given the over-hyped distinction since 1986, when Philippines president Corazon C. Aquino was honored, unless you are counting 2006’s cheeky decision to name “You” as the Person of the Year. In fact, since the tradition was started in 1927 (almost 90 years) only three other women have been honored: Elizabeth II, Wallis Simpson, and the American Woman, whatever the hell that means.”
