Default Russians


“What do you think of the Russians?”, asked Nancy.

“I don’t know any, so what do I know?, replied Sue. “Why do

you ask?”

“I just saw on facebook that they are out to get us and

messed with our elections.”

“Why?”

“I don’t know. Something about world domination.”

“Domination seems like a lot of hard work. First you have to

fight and win, then you have to keep track of them. Why would any

one want that?”

“I don’t know. You’ll have to ask them.”

“Who?”

“The Russians.”

“I’ll call them. Do you have their number?”

“I’m sure if you bing it, you can find it.”

Sue did just that and then called some number and got

someone named Ivan or something like that at their embassy.

“I hear that you want to dominate us, why?”, she asked.

“Vut else do ve have to du.”, was the response.

“That doesn’t sound like much of a reason. Well, never mind.

It don’t make sense to me.”

“Good, cus it makes sense to me. Have a nice day. Oh and

start learning Russian. It vill help you later.”

Black Russian, a fav. You might want to order a Chinese dict too while you're in a learning mood.

many of us remember the USSR - the new people don't. History as usual is too dry for the young. Don't worry about learning Chinese - it will come gradually by reading the labels on the products we buy from them.

Where have you been for the past thirty-five years? The U.S. has been flooded with Chinese products since the early 80s. The Russian myth is fool's gold concocted by the Trump-hating Liberals. I don't remember the Russians being so bad when Obama was dealing with them for eight years.
