Vladimir Putin Paints Himself A Bigger Sword

putins-swordVLADIMIR Putin surveys the likeness and tells the founder of the Russian school of high realism, Ilya Glazunov, that the sword in one of his paintings was too short. It looks “only good for slicing sausage”.

Glazunov is the top brush at the head of the Russian Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture and a member of the Order of Merit for the Fatherland.

Says Putin to him:

“The sword is a bit too short, it looks like a pocket knife in his hands. It looks like it is only good for slicing sausage.”

Begging the question: How big is a sausage?
Answer: How big do you think it is, Mr Glazunov. And I urge you think carefully before answering. And look at the poweful hands.”

Glazunov nods and says that the sword as featured in the work ‘Prince Oleg with Igor’ will be made to the correct size.

Says Putin:”I don’t miss a single detail.”

Well, little things please littleā€¦
