Keep on Trukhin!

Anyone ever have a flat while?

"The policemen, who put hedgehogs in the way of the irrepressible tractor driver, "
I don't understand how they thought one of these was going to stop it....

First Iowa with a combine demolition derby, now Russia. It's a worldwide farm equipment terrorist plot! Farmers unite!

Must have been brain dead or retarded not to hear machine gun fire.

Ah-Ha! a new terrerist attack scheme, they'll crash tractors into farms of wild hedgehogs, shinagins i tell ya

Hedgehogs rule...
I mean look at Sonic...
granted, the avg hedgehog won't be BLUE, but still...
when I lived in Europe, they'd be walking across the street -- splat -- and stuff... good times, good times indeed.

Just to clarify (I can't tell if everyone is being sarcastic, or missing the point), hedgehogs are the language-barrier version of spike strips that cops lay in the road.

It's all fun and games until someone gets 'cranial injury brought with an iron tube.'

These articles are great simply for the translation.
2001-10-15 01:27:22 PM  
It reads like Radar O'Rielly wrote it.
2001-10-15 01:33:13 PM  
ahhh ok I get it now.
It's all about the incorrect translation. What they really meant was that the police put wombats in the road to slow the tractor down. Not hedgehogs.
Make sense now?

He was drunk, meaning probably a little bit of both.

it sounds to me like the driver was the one who suffered the cranial injury, at which point he fell off the tractor, which continued on sans driver.

I think that drunk tractor driving should be an olympic sport. West Virginians would definitely shine on the US team.
2001-10-15 02:26:38 PM  
I am convinced everyone in Russsia is drunk.
2001-10-15 02:47:19 PM  
ah, if Pravda wrote their English articles in English.. just imagine the possibilities!!

I love you, Pravda..
2001-10-15 02:47:28 PM

cool, I want a heroic tractor and a gallon of low quality, high alcohol vodka
2001-10-15 03:37:44 PM  
to much vodka for him
2001-10-15 03:46:27 PM  
The translation's funny; but read it to yourself with the voice of Boris from Rocky & Bullwinkle. Now DATSA funny.

BTW, ever notice how close FARKER is to FARMER?

And how many FARKERS are drunk at any given moment?

Judge not.

"This story, which happened one of these days in the town Uzhum, Kirov region, could decorate any blockbuster."

"That was the end of the story." (I have no idea why they included that in the article. I think we can tell.)

Oh do I love Pravda articles more than any other!
2001-10-15 04:01:56 PM  
As a result - cranial injury brought with an iron tube. = COMEDY
2001-10-15 07:21:49 PM  

tee hee hee hee.

aaahhh thud.



fell off my chair laughing.

Thanks for all the translations....i was almost ready to send this to the peta idiots (maybe they wouldve taken up the hedgehog rally in Russia and get outta here). Poor hedgehogs...LMAO!
