"The Kremlin's Not Laughing Now" by Josh Yaffa - NYTimes.com

Here's my man Josh "Hove" Yaffa comin' in hot with a New York Times column on Russian satire in the face of political disenfranchisement and fraud. Russians aren't funny, as a rule. They'd rather face chronic oppression with a tall glass of cheap vodka and a bleak sense of fatalism. But now apparently the worm has turned and they're running around with pictures of Putin wearing condoms as hats, so, good for them? Feel like everybody that makes a joke about Putin has about 6 months to live if they're lucky, before they randomly come down with a case of acute arsenic poisoning. Dude is ruthless. Eyes like coal.
