This Chrome Extension Adds Minions To Greek Debt Articles

Sure, why not?

Posted on July 17, 2015, at 2:20 p.m. ET

Here is a Chrome Extension that turns any mention of Greece/Greek/Grexit into "Minions"

Sick of reading about the whole boring Greek bailout? Do you love Minions? I've got good news and bad news.

The good news is that Quartz developer John West built a Chrome extension that automatically changes the topic of any news article about the Greek bailout to Minions, and adds appropriate Minion art.

That's also the bad news. Enjoy.

This is what a recent BuzzFeed article about Greece looks like with the extension:

It also changes the text to be really A+++++ ("Minion services"):

Greek Parliment becomes Minion Parliment:

"Grexit" becomes "Minionpocolypse":

Happy Friday, everyone.
