Stalin’s ghost appears to Putin in a dream, and Putin asks for his help running the country.
Stalin says, “Round up and shoot all the democrats, and then paint the inside of the Kremlin blue.”
“Why blue?” Putin asks. “Ha!” says Stalin. “I knew you wouldn’t ask me about the first part.”
just as Yeltsin rewarded Putin for his loyalty, now Putin is doing the same for his anointed successor, Medvedev.
There is already a new Putin joke: Putin goes to a restaurant with Medvedev and orders a steak.
The waiter asks, “And what about the vegetable?” Putin answers, “The vegetable will have steak too.”
Putin and Bush are fishing on the Volga River.
After half an hour Bush complains, “Vladimir, I’m getting bitten like crazy by mosquitoes,
but I haven’t seen a single one bothering you.”
Putin: “They know better than that”
