23 June 2016. This Is For REAL… I Shit You Not (Pun INTENDED)

Read this.

I shit you not… if someone pisses you off, these jabronies will send them a box of fresh malodorous animal turd (at least, one hopes that it’s animal and not human). Doesn’t this just give you the warm n’ fuzzies just thinking about it? Trust me, I’m not the only imperfect being out there who found this a breath of “fresh air” and a right smart way of getting even with the assholes pulling asshattery in your life. Kids… somebody’s making money off this… ONLY IN AMERICA… “Land of Opportunity”. What’ll they do next? I don’t wanna know…

OMON Nicks Protestors at Pussy Riot Hearing


On Wednesday, police detained several protesters outside a Moscow court during a hearing for three members of the all-female punk group Pussy Riot, who could face lengthy jail sentences over an anti-Putin protest at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. Cops arrested at least 12 people as they blew whistles in protest. The court is deciding whether to keep the women in custody ahead of their trial, which still doesn’t have a definite date. The band’s lawyer, Nikolai Polozov, told RIA-Novosti that the court’s likely to prolong custody for a month.

Around 200 people gathered outside the court building to demand freedom for the suspects, in gaol since their arrest in early and mid-March. Several Orthodox demonstrators staged a simultaneous counter-protest. Suspects Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Yekaterina Samutsevich face up to seven years in jail on hooliganism charges. They’re in remand custody until 24 June. Five masked members of Pussy Riot, clad in brightly-coloured balaclavas, bowed and crossed themselves as they sang an a capella version of a song entitled Holy Shit at the cathedral in February. The lyrics included lines such as, “Holy Mother, Blessed Virgin, chase Putin out!” Pussy Riot said the performance was a response to Patriarch Kirill’s backing of President-elect Vladimir Putin in the run-up to his landslide 4 March election victory. The patriarch called the 12 years of Putin’s rule “a miracle of God” in a televised meeting. Amnesty International recognised the suspects as prisoners of conscience in April, and a number of political and Orthodox figures called for their release.
