Mr. Putin can get a fair amount of fur from giving his best puppy friend a haircut~~but~he evidently doesn’t care for clipping piglets~~
Mr. Putin finds the Americans exasperatingly small-minded~
While we in the klatch understand fully the lesson of history that the Russians weren’t meant to be understood and, leaving our own Hedrick Smith’s swell books about the Russians aside here for now, must say that~~
Mr. Putin certainly has a way with words–having said this today~apropos of young Mr. Snowden~~an American boy who, the gentlemen of the American press tell the klatch, may, or may not, have been naughty with some sort of computer machinery~~
“I myself would prefer not to deal with these issues. It’s like giving a baby pig a haircut: there’s a lot of squealing, but there’s little wool,” he told a news conference in Finland.
“Two pigs walk into a barber shop~one Italian pig~one Russian pig. Italian pig says to the Russian pig~”you go ahead first~yours won’t take long~~you don’t have any hair to cut to begin with.”
Words are funny old shoes~sometimes they don’t necessarily need to rhyme or even have a discernible meaning to be just~plain~cute~as a baby bug’s ears~
Rejoice and Glad!!

“There’s just gotta be a pig around here to clip someplace”~
