Putin’s Court (with Judge BC)
Just like his Russian-Rasta forerunner, Ras Putin, our time’s own Vladi Putin has been putting the Ukraine (and the world) under heavy manners. Faster than most people could drive from Kursk to Kiev, Vladimir Put-That-In-My-Bag has simply swallowed the Crimea on behalf of his Mother Russia/Brother Gangsters.

Russia and Putin were delighted with themselves—but the rest of the world, particularly what remains, at least for now, the Ukraine, wasn’t catching the same glad.
