Have an opinion about a world leader that you would like to express through a lame pun? Then WP is the place for you! What's that you say? Aren't there rules about living people? Oh, sure there are, but those only apply to Americans! And if you're a Commons admin, no one can try to delete your self-made joke image because it's "in use". Go ahead, amuse yourself (just not on the ones we like).

Putin on the Ritz


No, I'm not kidding.

I thought Russavia (T-C-L-K-R-D) was a pro-Putin POV pusher? What's with the anti-Putin pie? unsure.gif

Ritz is a cracker, not a pie.

I don't see it as anti-Putin.

More as salty humor. biggrin.gif

I prefer Peter Boyle & Gene Wilder's version.

I almost posted that version—but it's so often used.

Cheese and crackers—biscuits for our British audience. Hold the Russian dressing.

If you guys knew what a drunken chav Russavia is (in the "real world"), this "joke" would make far more sense.
And I suppose they know what Ritz crackers are in Perth.....

Yes, after all, who wants to eat a soggy biscuit?

One wonders if the copyright holder of the Putin photo realised what he let himself in for when he granted a CC licence. laugh.gif

The Putin article itself is now at BLP.

Personally, my favorite parts of the article are the ones on "Putin's Adventures" and "Putin's Artistic Endeavors". Sheeeeeeeeeeeeetttttt, what other world leader can point to such accomplishments?
