He should be “hung by his balls.”
Yes,he actually said that. Now that’s a guy I’d rather not party with.
I guess Vladimir is bucking for a big lump of coal in his stocking this year.
MOSCOW – Prime Minister Vladimir Putin appeared wryly to confirm on Thursday French media reports that he had said Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili deserved to be hung by his testicles for his role in the August war with Russia.
French media had quoted Putin as saying in a heated conversation with French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Moscow on August 12 that Saakashvili should be “hung by his balls” for starting the war which was roundly condemned by the West.
In a distraction from queries about the economic crisis during a lengthy televised question and answer session with the Russian public, Putin was asked: “Is this true you promised to hang Saakashvili by one part?”
Smiling thinly at the question, posed over a crackling phone line by a man in the Russian city of Penza, Putin, who has in the past used coarse language to hammer home a point, waited for the laughter of his studio audience to subside before replying:
“But why only by one part?” (H/T – )
Ooh, he’s so dark! No wonder he’s such a hit with the Russian ladies. Seriously, I question the sanity of a man who suggests such a punishment. Guys don’t joke about “the junk,” “the boys,” or the sack lunch.” It’s just inappropriate.
Of course, former KGB agents usually fail Manners 101.
