He's not bad, he's just drawn that way...

My friend Julie sent me this interesting story from the Moscow News. Everytime I want to complain about our government (read as: daily), I realize how truly fortunate we are. I mean, these guys were arrested for drawing freakin' cartoons.

Still, it's enabled me to be less cynical about the Belarussian government. At least they have identified the problem. It's those out of control kids and their cartoons. I'm sure that is what contributes most to the lack of resources, poverty, despair and rampant cancer rates in the country. Relax, Belarus--things just got a whole lot better.

By the way, as a bicyclist, and a huge fan of irony, I love the sleeves on his shirt in this cartoon--they look like knockoff LiveStrong bands he's wearing. Hey Al! You can find the real ones here, from an organization doing something about cancer.

Its about time the Belarussian government cracked-down on those cartoon drawing saboteurs. It’s evident that these people are obviously to blame for the sorry state of affairs of the motherland. Now that Heir President has these malcontent miscreants out of the way - he will finally be able to continue with his glorious plan to turn Belarus into the "workers paradise" it is destined to be.

Everyone knows how all the problems always start with artsy-fartsy types, next he will need to take-on those pointy headed intellectuals, followed by entrepreneurs, teachers, librarians, etc. Luka is following the bright and shinny example of the former exalted leader of the Cambodian paradise - Pol Pot. Everyone needs a role model you know.

Death to the bourgeoisie !! Long live the proletariat!

OOPS…I got a little carried away there
