Is this what is known as a white Russian???

After an extensive investigation, it was determined that Bruno was killed by a medal shotgun.

Posted by: JohnJ at January 4, 2007 06:16 PM

He should get another medal just for being brave enough to walk around looking like that!

Posted by: zsa zsa at January 4, 2007 07:52 PM

A great example of why heavy metal and vodka don't mix!...

Posted by: zsa zsa at January 5, 2007 05:53 AM

Look, this guy is obviously a highly decorated WW2 vet, with everything from the Order of the USSR (like the UK's VC or the USA's CMOH) to medals for being wounded to badges for being a grunt under fire. Some are out of official placement protocol, but he has them.

I don't feel like making fun of this man.


Posted by: chsw at January 5, 2007 07:29 AM

Wincing in pain, Valadamir hoped they could have at least attached the medals instead of just sticking them in like a tack.

Captain Kangaroo receives yet another Lifetime Achievement Award.

Posted by: Ken S, Fifth String on the Banjo of Life at January 5, 2007 08:22 AM

That is all fine and good for Captain Kangaroo! BUT what about poor Mr. Green Jeans???...

Rep. Murtha(D) attends Nancy Pelosi(D)'s swearing-in as Speaker of the House.

Posted by: DANEgerus at January 5, 2007 09:38 AM

Unfortunately, Mr. Green Jeans was the Sideshow Bob of his time, but without the violent streak and cool voice.

Posted by: Ken S, Fifth String on the Banjo of Life at January 5, 2007 01:41 PM

chsw, I think we can have a little light fun at the man's expense without denigrating his service during World War II.

But the man is out celebrating Stalin's birthday after all, I think he might lose points for that.

Look at all the great bling I got on eBay!

Standing at attention in the hot sun for hours, Boris finally succumbed to 'medal fatigue'.

Posted by: elliot at January 7, 2007 08:13 AM

OK, McCracken. A little levity. But I that it will be hard to top Julie's comment.
