Chypryna / чуприна is for short fuzzy hair :-)
We'll say a rosary and light candles for your brave Cossack. Yeah.

You'll miss him if when he's gone!

It was only after reading the FT this morning that I realized that the Groper had been pinching men! That’s a horse of a different color. He’s meant to be Conservative.

Pinching a man is unfortunate, pinching two men is careless.

Pinching three men requires a third hand, if it's all to be done at once.

Not sure how reliable it is, but I think any time a British PM's troubles become news in America -- America, where we regard New Mexico as a foreign country country and Canada as a distant planet -- any time a British PM's troubles become news here, he's toast.

So Boris has been on borrowed time for a while.

In retrospect, handing him a whip may have been a mistake. The pincher, I mean.

Any politician who travelled in Asia by foot and speaks 11 languages can't be all bad.

He'll do in a pinch?

Wait, which politician is this?

I find zombies slightly less interesting than Kardashians, and only because the latter crowd occasionally produces a decent (wait, I think that should read indecent) sex tape. As in, I can hardly imagine anything less interesting. But, I guess Boris the zombie may be a thing. I surely wouldn’t want to watch the sex tape, though.
