Displaying individual stupidity is what “America’s Funniest Home Videos” does but so much more hilarious and quite frankly scarier than inadvertent crotch kicks from three year olds is the macro scale of government stupidity.
Here’s the background: The birth dearth in Russia has achieved such calamitous proportions that Russian Emperor-for-eternity Vladmir Putin is responding with what can only be termed something so mind bogglingly crazy that the entire continent might have to be fitted with a strait jacket. This is the kind of stupidity that would embolden alien attacks if there were actually aliens.
Low birthrates have put the future of the entire country in doubt. So, given the knowledge that the entire country doesn’t have enough babies to support older unemployed Russians, Putin is recruiting older and unemployed former boy band members to solve that. Yup. He’s calling on Boyz II Men to woo Russian women into the bedroom and eventually into the maternity ward. Yes. Read that again and somehow accept the devastating truth that a nuclear power is calling on a former boy band group to save the day. This doesn’t just defy logic it genetically modifies logic to grow arms so Putin can twist them behind its back and make it cry.
