Who’s to blame for socks with holes and empty beer glasses?

Angela Merkel, according to a Facebook page set up by Germans with a satirical sense of humor.

The page “Danke Merkel” — meaning “thanks, Merkel” — blames the German chancellor for many of life’s little problems, including burnt pizza, broken pencils and overloaded “Pokemon Go” servers.

While it’s unclear who created the page, it appears to be poking fun at German nationalists who regularly use social media to accuse the chancellor of trying to harm her own country.
