Mother Russia

To further celebrate the ongoing Sochi Olympics, here's some all-in-good-fun Russian LOLs for your viewing pleasure! First up, the history of Russia in 4 words:


Oh, so THAT'S how the Bolsheviks did it!


Soviet realism at its finest:


This next one is sad but true. Che Guevara must be rolling in his unmarked grave. (Okay, okay, I know he wasn't Russian but close enough, eh?)


And hasn't poor old Lenin fallen on hard times these days?


Oh oh, boys, whatever you do, don't look in a mirror at the reverse image of those badges! You might have to arrest yourselves!


And last but not least:

I thought the OMOH thing was fake. I really did. Then I looked it up. It's so beautifully wonderfully real.

That last guy looks uncomfortable.

Guillaume said...

I am not watching the gay-mes, partially because of Putin's regime. I don't think I am missing much.

Ahhhh...... I haven't been able to see any of the Olympics this year and I love the Olympics. Oh well. Figure skating would have a very different landscape if it were left to those two you have pictured there. lol Entertaining and horrifying (didn't someone lose their head in that movie?) to say the least.

Hope you're doing well!
Blessings,
Bird

OMOH? Wow. Perfect. And clips/stills of Blades of Glory should decorate and punctuate ALL skating competitions.

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Have not watched one minute of the Olympics in this house... am I bad? Oh, and I think all male skaters should be required to wear gold lame' pants.
