Although this picture of sleeping Russian politicians is one year old, yesterday it resurfaced on RuNet through one popular blog. The blogger accompanied the picture with the following words – “Why do we still wonder that the country is in deep shit? Look at these faces…”
Comments by Russian netizens:
vedma2860: Prime Minister’s speech was met with great attention and interest))
deputat_yehu: So what? They are faggots because they are bored? No, they are faggots because they are faggots!
Pennkoff: This is definitely much more pleasant face.
woland_08: Wait a minute. People voted for Putin? Voted. So, we will look at these faces for other 12 years.
louchsveta: Sleeping at work – Minister of Champagne Affairs.
sergeiizsibiri: “Don’t see anything: see some pig snots instead of faces, and nothing else…” (Gogol N. V.)
[Note: This is a quote from the famous Russian play “The Government Inspector”]
brat_pencha: tired… possibly they go to work by trolley buses in the early morning
miss_marple_III (replying to the previous comment): … no, by galleys
[Note: refers to Putin’s famous quote about his presidency: I have worked like a galley slave throughout these eight years, morning till night, and I have given all I could to this work. I am happy with the results]
Vitaliy Stepanov: Morning after night in sauna.
largann: They are thinking about Russia … selfless service for the benefit of the people …
startracker: It is curious. Faces of opps [ed: oppositioners] are such that it’s better to immediately run away yelling “Help!” (Shenderovich, Kasparov, Novodvorskaya, Alekseeva - their name is legion). But somehow I haven’t come across physiognomic arguments from pro-Putinists, even in Live Journal. Of course, now I will hear pig squeals, but maybe it’s because the average IQ of opposition is below the ground level?
gromokovsky_v_v: And who said that the country is in deep shit? The country is fine. Something wrong is with the faces of those who believe that she is in deep shit. What’s on their minds is on their faces.
seyachaspomru (replying to the comment above): If the largest country in the world is not the strongest, then we are in shit by definition. Formula for the biggest country is simple – either you are among leaders or you are nothing. If you want me to name at least one specific problem – we have the crisis of governance in the country; in normal countries the senior management changes regularly every eight-ten years, see the examples of the USA or China (comparable with Russia by scale of the country). Otherwise we lose in development, there is no innovation, shortage of personnel in the country. And if the country has personnel shortage – then soon there will economic, political crisis, and so on.
arian_furred: You take the picture of Steve Hawking and put is as if people who look like this can’t be scientists.
louchsveta (replying to the comment above): in the contest of the dumbest comment you would take the first prize.
Sleeping Russian Politicians Photoshopped
In another site I found funny photoshop versions of the original shot.
