Putin: In Russia Everything is AK

“During a visit here,” indiatimes.com reports. “Putin watched as the [Olympic] torch was taken apart and put back together, prompting him to quip that the torch’s gas pipe resembles the barrel of the famous Soviet-designed weapon. ‘No matter what you try and make in Russia, it always turns out like a Kalashnikov,’ he joked. Putin’s remark drew smiles from International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Jacques Rogge and Sochi 2014 chief organiser Dmitry Chernyshenko. Russian internet users have compared the silver-and-red torch’s shape to a flame used in the logo for Russian state gas firm Gazprom.” Which is completely different and not nearly as funny.

When it comes to the allure of weighing your gun down tricking your gun out with accessories, it seems even the Russians aren’t immune these days. After you watch Vladimir Putin solemnly examining a ‘state of the art’ airsoft gun, zoom to 0:4o to see what happens when the Автомат Калашникова meets the дешевле, чем грязь* catalog.  It’s a good thing it features ‘reinforced plastic’ because that much tactical gadgetry might snap the barrel off an M2 .50-caliber machine gun. Please tell me no Russian soldier actually thinks this thing is cool. Does the Russian language have a term for ‘Mall Ninja?’
