Russia confirmed for mad

Recommended Posts

http://observer.com/...gainst-america/

 

If you talk to a Russian about the international political situation, sooner or later you will be informed that there is a country in North America that you’ve never heard of. Its name is ‘Pindosia,’ ‘Pindostan’ or, more officially, ‘United States of Pindostan,’ and you will be told that one part of it, called Alaska, used to belong to Russia. Part of the word—‘stan’—stands for underdeveloped state, as in ‘ Pakistan,’ ‘Kazakhstan,’ or ‘Uzbekistan.’ The citizens of this country in plural form are called ‘pindoses,’ in singular—‘pindos.’

 

There are more than 316 million ‘pindoses’ in ‘Pindostan.’

 

Today, this country has a black President, and the Russians have a nickname for him too. He is called Maximka—after a character from a popular Soviet movie, made in 1952, which told the story of a black boy saved by the Russian sailors from the cruelty of the vicious American slave-traders who were terribly abusing him and calling him just that—“Boy.” In the film, the saved boy was fed well by the Russian crew, given the name Maximka, and became one of their own in the end.

 

But by the modern-day Russian legend, Maximka, unfortunately, has grown up into an ungrateful Russophobe.

 

The whole article is full of hilarious snippets such as:

 

A number of Russian politicians have been working very hard to keep the flames of rage burning. Last week, the Speaker of the Russian Parliament, Sergei Naryshkin, raised the issue of starting an international investigation of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings by the US in 1945, as a ‘crime against humanity’ has no time limit. He wanted nothing less than a new Nuremberg trial with the US at the criminal’s bench.

 

Putin is mad after McCain trolled him on twitter:

 

Another hated ‘pindos’ is Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), famous in Russia for his periodic tweets to ‘Dear Vlad.’ In 2011, for example, Mr. McCain tweeted Putin, “Dear Vlad, The #ArabSpring is coming to a neighborhood near you.” Usually reserved and purposefully polite while talking about his ‘partners from over the Big Pool’ (Big Pool being the Atlantic Ocean ), this time Mr. Putin shot back, saying that Mr. McCain “has a lot of blood of peaceful civilians on his hands. He must relish and can’t live without the disgusting, repulsive scenes of the killing of Gadhafi.” “Mr. McCain was captured in Vietnam and they kept him not just in prison, but in a pit for several years,” Mr. Putin added. “Anyone [in his place] would have had his roof moved over.” The last three words in Russian slang mean “suddenly to become insane.”

Err, I'm not sure how seriously this article is meant to be taken. I don't know The Observer or if it's a satire and/or bs news source, so maybe I'm way off in thinking that. The first paragraph in your quotes made me skeptical, since Russian plurals don't use an -es or -s suffix (when transliterated). They use -wuf6dyP.png(i/y) or -2MglUgi.png(i/y) depending on the preceding letter. Pindo (eLYvOE2.png) also isn't in my Russian-English dictionary, nor does it sound like a Russian word.

 

I realise the political situation with Russia is tense, but I'm not too sure about this article's accuracy.
