I Just Couldn't Pass This Up!

I can't remain TOO serious for TOO long, right?! Right. I needed to share this cover from the February 28, 2008 issue of the Economist.

SOMEONE STOP THE BEARS!!! THEY ARE EATING RUSSIA'S OIL!!! DAMN THE BEARS!!!
Черт возьми медведей! If only the Wall had never come down...Lenin could have stopped this travesty. This wannabe Winnie the Putin is more like a modern day Yuri Bear: "Hey, Boo-Boris, let's get another barrel of oil." (That line was contributed by good friend and genius, Brigman Harman).

Really, I'm very concerned for Russia's future if their oil reserves are threatened by petroleum-hungered bears...but it was the Economist who reported it. It HAS to be true, right?!

This is why I hunted bears in the past. To save the environment and world economy. Granted, I've yet to do it in Russia, but I was just ahead of my time in my desire to prevent further global oil shortage.

Hurray for my me and my obviously exceptional global awareness! I really am a special person...

Russia's problems with petroleum addicted Ursidae would be easily solved if they simply treated them the way they treat those who dissent against Putin. I.E.: Death.

I'm just impressed you read this magazine. Whenever people say "Oh I was reading The Economist the other day..." I never catch what they say next because I'm too busy thinking "Wow, you read the Economist? You must be very very smart and very very grown up."

Hey... you stole my line.

I just realized that, Brig. It was so good, it had to be uttered on the blogosphere. I'll give it the proper citation it deserves, no worries.
