This.

“Yes, we stood in line for Black Friday at WalMart…but it was America and we loved it.”

This satire really had me chuckling, even though it’s SO TRUE. It’s based upon Boyd Tonkins’ review of Svetlana Alexievich’s Second Hand Time, titled “The Hopeless Wasteland of Modern Russia”. (on Secondhand Time itself: ts;dr*; read this for a take on the Nobel Prize-winning author herself.)

And always remember, Russia is a backwards hellhole where nothing good ever happens and everyone is miserable beyond belief.


*too shallow; don’t read.
