Some of the best stories yet from Pravda, the thinking person's news source.
Lenin's Kinky Explosion
After this morning's typically hackneyed April Fool's Day stories in the UK press, this unbelievable story of Lenin's arse being blown out of his St. Petersburg statue late last night trumps the lot - fantastic pics, and what can we make of the bizarre detail of the knife placed in the great man's outstretched hand?
Boy, 7, Dies Playing Serial Killer
The detail is quite scant in this story, and I don't know what to make of it (is there an implication that it wasn't an accident?) - as in so many of these Russian cases, it's a fleeting look behind a mysterious curtain of which we have precious little real understanding.
Egyptian Text Message Deaths
If this was any other country, it would be laughable - the fact that it's Egypt means that it must be a curse, and therefore must be true; cue cheesy new Japanese horror film.
