Political discourse in Russia has reached a terrifying level. Not content with poisoning journalists or jailing the opposition it seems Putin and his supporters have a new tactic of shutting down it's critics. They're now unleashing flying genitalia.
I'll give you a moment to let that sink in.
Russian chess master Garry Kasparov has led the Other Russian movement, a collection of activists opposed to Putin's regime. Speaking at a conference his words were interrupted when a small helicopter penis came flying around the assembly. Kasparov seemed to take it in good humour though after an associate batted down the flying phallus.
Okay I know this is completely juvenile, but I find it really funny. I hope that someone drops a load of these (Zing!) at our parties' national conventions.
Okay after that's enough talk about penis. I need some Ann Hathaway now.
"I think we have to be thankful for the opposition's demonstration of the level of discourse we need to anticipate. Also, apparently most of their arguments are located beneath the belt." - Garry Kasparov
