16 June 2015. You Could Get the Notion that Chilly Hilly isn’t All that Popular in the Rodina

А вот и я, пока дурдом на ремонте, здрасьте! (A vot i ya, poka durdom na remonte, zdrastye!)

This hinges on дурдом, which is a colloquial calque of дурак (fool, nitwit, crazy) and дом (house), thus, “looney-bin”, “nuthouse”, or “funny-farm”… it can also mean “mad talk”, “bullshit”, or “nuts”. Literally, the Russian to English would be, “Here I am, as long as my bullshit I can fix, hi!” Therefore, I’d put it into idiomatic English it as “Hi, I’m here as long as I can fix up my bullshit!”

I got this from a friend in the Motherland. I’d wager that Chilly Hilly wouldn’t even get honourable mention on any Russian fave list, except for “Top Asshat of the Year”. She really screwed over S V Lavrov, who took her at face value at first (boy, did Sergei Viktorovich ever learn!)… she gave it to him in public, too (a great way to win friends and influence people, no?).

In short… nobody likes this cold-hearted and cold-blooded grasping bitch… she’s not the Wicked Witch of Wall Street for nought. Where’s Dorothy and where’s the bucket of water?

10 February 2015. Ukie Junta Strongman Poroshenko Displays Russian Military Hardware Seized from Rebels! (It’s a Joke, Son…)

Have a laugh… after all, Poroshenko’s Galician Uniate rabble can’t capture a busted-down shitter, let alone any workable military equipment from the patriot forces. The only question now is “when” the junta will fall… not “if” it will…

Sic semper tyrannis… after all, the UPA are “heroes” according to this creepo supremo…

On Tuesday, the People’s Daily, the official mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, published a story on its website about North Korea‘s young leader, Kim Jong Un, being named by The Onion the “Sexiest Man Alive”. The newspaper described the organisation awarding the title as the “American website The Onion“, but didn’t mention that The Onion is a satirical outlet.
