Germany's 7-1 thrashing of Brazil in Tuesday's World Cup semifinal still has the world talking as the host country remains in mourning. The five goals by Die Mannschaft in the first 29 minutes was a World Cup record. They were also the first side to score five goals in a World Cup semifinal since the 1958 Seleção squad.
So with the worldwide attention still focused on that match, even with Argentina and Holland facing off in the second semifinal on Wednesday, it was only a matter of time before Brazil's embarrassing defeat was given the Taiwanese animation treatment by Tomo News. And they didn't disappoint:
How "Germany gives Brazil most painful Brazilian wax in history" wasn't the headline in every major newspaper around the world today is beyond me. The New York Post, known for its zany front pages, went with the cliche'd "Das 'boot'."
The scenes of Thomas Mueller and Miroslav Klose scoring goals was pretty accurate in how easy Germany made things look. There were a lot of goals in the match, so we'll just assume even Jogi Lowe scored one himself as well.
