Whiny Pussies that are easily defeated by skinny Asian guys?

The Kremlin is seeking to use the once-feared paramilitary squads in its new drive to promote conservative values and appeal to nationalists.
...
The conservative Cossacks have increased their political activity in response to an impromptu protest that feminist punk rockers Pussy Riot staged in Moscow's main cathedral in February. Groups of Cossacks recently barred visitors from entering a Moscow art exhibition that daubed Pussy Riot's trademark balaclavas over Orthodox Christian icons, and they led a successful campaign to cancel a staging of Vladimir Nabokov's racy novel "Lolita" in St. Petersburg.


More like Chuck Norris than they realize.

I agree. This could end up being not funny at all. Especially the "cracking down on Muslims in Sochi" part.

"They are just like Cossacks, and they work for the government, but they're welcomed with open arms. How come this should be allowed in America, but not in Russia, with our rich Cossack traditions? We're like Chuck Norris!" Gulichev said

Somehow I think this came out more like "They have similar to Coassacks. They work for government, but OK. Why this allowed in America but not Russia? It is Cossack Chuck Norris!"

The tears of a Cossack cure hemophilia. Too bad for the Romanovs that no Cossack has ever cried.

Cossacks on the Zaporozhian Sich don't swim; the water of the Kakhovka Reservoir just wants to be around them.

The distinctive fleece hats that Cossack men wear have come to be known as "Cossack hats." For a similar reason, so has your mother.

semiotix: The tears of a Cossack cure hemophilia. Too bad for the Romanovs that no Cossack has ever cried.


I know of one Cossack who cried every time he talked about the little Tsar and the dowager Empress.

He was an impressionable 19 year old in the Imperial Guard when the Revolution started, and those two really endeared themselves to him for a lifetime.

He used to tell about an incident when he first started in the Imperial Guard. He was stationed in a hall that was lined with these huge gilded mirrors. The old Tsarina is passing through the hall alone when he accidentally fumbles his rifle. It hits the ground, goes off, and shatters one of these massive mirrors. He's totally dumbstruck by this catastrophe: not only has he destroyed an expensive item, he endangered one of the royal family in the process. The old Tsarina sees he's totally distraught, and she just smiles, walks over to another mirror, and gives it a real solid whack with her cane. The mirror shatters, and she turns back to him and says, "If anyone gives you any trouble, just say that crazy old lady was smashing up the place."

A nice Jewish girl of my acquaintance always claimed that one of her forebearers was a Cossack and a Jew.

If you knew her, this might go a long way to explaining her unique mental processes.

Yup.

I love her to death, though: she has a good heart for all the other stuff.

/Never dated her, though, so that might explain my feelings.
