Bad Russian Literary Humor!

Q. What do you call the President of Russia when he steps on a cracker?

A. Putin on the Ritz.

(And yes, that’s just one copy of War and Peace!)

The Chukchi live in the boondocks of Russia, so they get picked on in ethnic jokes … like the one about the Chukcha applying for membership in the Russian Writers Guild.

During his interview, the Chukcha is asked what Russian literature he’s familiar with.

"Have you read Pushkin?"
"Have you read Dostoevsky?"
"Can you read at all?"
Offended, he replies, "Chukcha not reader, Chukcha writer!"
