From Russia with snit

A scathing attack of the Games—and of the host country

by

Russian newspaper Pravda has issues with the Olympics, Vancouver, figure skating judges, cowardly Canadians—and mutton. (The article is titled ‘Vancouver: Mutton Dressed as Lamb.’) “The abject cruelty shown by Canadian soldiers in international conflicts is scantily referred to, as indeed is the utter incapacity of this county to host a major international event, due to its inferiority complex, born of a trauma being the skinny and weakling bro to a beefy United States and a colonial outpost to the United Kingdom, whose Queen smiles happily from Canadian postage stamps. Maybe it is this which makes the Canadians so . . . retentive, or cowardly.”
