Quote of the Week

I really wanted to give Quote of the Week to this quote, regarding Greece and the difference between a "controlled default" and an "uncontrolled default". But then, this weekend, I was listening to "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" on NPR, and I heard them do a bit about Vladimir Putin.

Why Putin? Because last week, The Atlantic posted an absolutely epic photo gallery of Putin's staged photo shoots over the past couple of years. (Putin drives a Formula One car! Putin goes on an archaeological dive! Putin stares down a leopard! Putin feeds a baby moose! Putin bends a frying pan with his bare hands!) These photo shoots stand in stark contrast to the photo shoots that our Presidents tend to have, but I digress.

The point is, the folks on NPR had a field day with this one, and I almost died laughing when host Peter Sagal dropped this gem.


"The Dos Equis guy may be the most interesting man in the world, but when Vladimir Putin drinks beer, he does it with that guy's mom."
