I don't see what's so funny? I'm Canadian, and we take the matter of illegal Vietnamese pigs very seriously. Please refrain from mirth. Thank you, that is all.
I can't blame the poor woman at all.
This reminds me of my all-time favorite news blooper. NewsMan #1 is reading from the teleprompter, and reports that two cows were loose on a road, "Black" and "Gus", and then finishes the report. NewsMan #2 on the news desk turns to him and says, "Do you suppose those two cows were Black Angus?"
Man #1 lost it completely. First he was mortified, then it was funny, and he could not stop laughing. He never did regain his composure and Man #2 and to read all the rest of the news.
Funniest thing I ever saw on TV. And I feel very very sorry for the person who wrote the news copy that day.
So what I'm getting from this is, if you want to make it with a hot Russian woman, a good opening line would be "Hey honey, how'd you like to go back to my apartment and check out my 2500 marijuana plants guarded by 13 bears. I'll even let you pet my pot bellied pig .. IF you know what I mean."
OK, let's see, it's been thirty five years since I took a Russian class in College, so this may be a little rough but here goes
Ayy dyetka, kaak vee hotyeli payehat k syebe na mayu dachu ee provereet moyemoo dva teesyach marihuani plantom ohranyayoot treenadsat myedvyedee ... Ya dazhay pazvolyayet pugladeet moy Vietnamski sveenee ... YESLY vii znayete shto ya hachoo skazat
Hey, see you boys later
It was a pot-bellied pig. Of course.
Or maybe they were working on a new kind of edible marijuana.
Step 1- feed pot to pig.
Step 2- Imagine getting stoned on bacon.
How is this old cow on the air? By Russian standards, she's a four.
It reminded me of Mark Twain's story of Grandfather's Old Ram. I kept waiting to find out more about the pig and the bears. Although I never really found out about them, it was entertaining enough! Otlichnaya skazka!
The headline reads like a "...walked into a bar...." joke.
We never did find out about the raccoon.
Anyone else notice that spinning red globe graphic on the right? It would only show Africa and Arabia, then fade to restart it again. The Americas and 3/4 of the world never show up.
This reminds me, now that we've seen Phelps and Bolt, can we expect the rabid State Prohibitions to launch a new campaign warning of the dangers of Marijuana ?
There's the danger that you might be the fastest man on earth.
There's the danger that you might be the fastest man in the water.
Can't have that now, can we?
Besides the somewhat comedic value, the more important issue is why is this even news in Russia? Do they really care that police found pot plants in Canada? I mean, isn't there bigger and more important news in Russia than a routine drug seizure in a country half a world away? Just more proof that Russian media does their best to dumb down the people!
@Christo..."half a world away?"...dude...we look across the tundra at each other.
Ruskies love vodka on slow news days.
