    Some humor into Russian anti-gay law

    Gotta love the New Yorker humor: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blog...-olympics.html

    (Mods, if this isn't OK, do remove my post; I think it's fine)

    Come on, you know darn well what the difference is! Both American presidents posted here were photographed on vacations they took - not for PR, but because they, too, take vacations; that's why they have bare chests there - they are both coming out of the water. Putin's photo, OTOH, was pure PR stunt - http://prverdict.com/putin-admits-hes-poser.

    What was there to PR for with ugly bare chest? And it was nothing flamboyant.

    Hah spot on satire.

    Ps it always struck me hilarious how the most homophobic groups in Russia go around shirtless, hugging each other, giving piggy back rides and essentially emulating gay spring break.

    After reading your post I immediately remembered Fincher´s movie Fight Club.

    It's been worse... How about this 1979 famous Brezhnev/Honecker pic? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Br...cker_1979.jpg?

    How stereotypical you are! That's all I can say.



    ...Although that 1979 photo was quite something else ...That was not a normal greeting looks like, wasn't it?

    No, it wasn't I think it raised more than a few eyebrows even then.
