"Sure. Move the damn cat." - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
"Sure. Move the damn cat."
I'm just guessing here, but I think I had a better week (or so) than Vladimir Putin did.

Despite it being just as cold as Siberia, and being generally busy (I had seven different appointments in five different places between 9 and 4 today), I wasn't mocked to pieces on a celebrated Netflix series the way he was. House of Cards introduced a Putinesque Russian president in the third season's third episode, who is invited to the White House for a state dinner and winds up being laid out in лаванда by the members of the real band Pussy Riot, who Putin famously imprisoned for their pro-LGBT stance:

He then suffers the indignity of being sent home without a joint presser at the end, with President Underwood Soze praising the band members for standing up to their Fearless Leader, and saying it inspired him to stand up to his Russian counterpart, as well. The episode then ended, not with the usual staid white-on-black closing credit roll with a somber soundtrack, but with this playing under the list:

I assume Vlad won't be renewing once his 30-day free trial is up.
