CLONING - PRESIDENTIAL STYLE?

Russia's President Medvedev gave the state of the nation speech yesterday.  Apart from jingoism of a military and national kind, it was reported that;

.... "The President,standing on his podium, said he wanted to increase Russia's birth rate."

There was a bribe, the offer of little parcels of land, [on which the wee bairns could play].

If any British politician made such a noble offer in the Commons, we can imagine the instant mirth. I wonder if Russians have the same sense of humour and irreverence.

You made me giggle Vincent.

I doubt if the business of the day would get finished if such a fecund offer was made in The House of Commons. As for recording it in Hansard....hmm.

Regarding Russian political humour and irreverance; I must ask about that. I am aware of a very dark type of satire, at a totally different level, underclass in its nature.

I read your text, but your two mini animations at the end left me speechless.

perhaps he should start by having all electricity switched-off at 9pm thus encouraging his citizens to make their own entertainment and so further his masterplan?

Hi MkL,

How's things with you?

I guess the two animated emoticons were the best I could find to endorse my immediate reaction to the announcement. :)

Ax,

The president has an election to consider; switching of a fuel source in the heart of winter would not make him popular with the voters.

What about AI?

then couldn't they create a special forces unit specifically for the job?

there'd be no shortage of volunteers!

ZACL said...

A special unit for the job.... what an interesting idea. Tell me, from where do you get your inside knowledge about volunteers? It sounds like a very useful contact.

i'm afraid it all comes off the top of my head just like everything else...

There must be some psychic connection somewhere. :)
