Russia Today, which is quickly becoming my favourite news outlet, have been asked by Vladimir Putin, the ex-president of Russia, current prime minister and the man most Russian women have a topless photo of him adorned to their wall, to name his new pet dog.
I feel this is a chance to really connect with Russia, the “big angry bear” to the east, who I feel are suspiciously just like you and me, I am getting to rather like Russia.
I have suggested George. My auntie has a dog called George, and he is adorable.
Or course, there could be other connotations, such as it could be named after his old friend, George Bush. Or perhaps the country that they last invaded, Georgia.
Either way, the invite is there for you to take part in shaping the future of Vladimir Putin’s life. How democratic.
