-long rambling historical lecture

-Yeah. Yeah. Sorry, I was thinking of birds for a moment. Many people in Ukraine are surprised and angry to learn they are actually Russia. What would happen if other parts of Russia learn they are actually France? Would they try to join the EU?

I could hear your post! 😂😂😂

[-] MrFunnyMoustache@lemmy.ml 177 points 5 months ago

Tell me more about the Soviet Onion.

You live in a place called Red Square, but it's not square-shaped. So why is it called that?

And is the Hermitage where all the Russian hermits live?

Why did Chernobyl explode? Did they forget to churn their bell?

"someone told me that the cold war never really ended, but my cousin Lucy went to Turkey on holiday last year and she said it was really hot and she got sunburnt, so has it ended or is the cold war only happening where it's snowed?"

You're famous for being photographed shirtless on a horse. Is that because horses can't judge you, or is it a new Russian policy for reducing laundry costs?

[-] Redacted@lemmy.world 118 points 5 months ago

We know Google Translate gets things wrong sometimes so I was just wondering if Russia means "Special" Military Operation in the same way the Americans mean "Special" Olympics?

King Arthur came a lot, didn't he?

Chainmail stocking

I have zero clue who that is....

This is Philomena Cunk, a satirical BBC news reporter. They produce videos in which she interviews historical experts but only asks them stupid questions like “Were the pyramids built from the ground up, or from the top down?”

[-] ninjan@lemmy.mildgrim.com 86 points 5 months ago

The best ones are with the philosophy guy imo, he employs the rethorical "Principle of Charity" in such a master class way which turns her stupid questions into profound conundrums which he tackles and he manages to act out this sense of being delighted to finally being asked deep philosophical questions in an interview. It's great.

Ngl that would be legitimately hilarious and I would watch the shit out of it lol

[-] EdibleFriend@lemmy.world 28 points 5 months ago

Putin wouldn't even play around with windows. He would get frustrated and shoot her himself like, at the most, 10 minutes into the interview.

[-] Gradually_Adjusting@lemmy.world 46 points 5 months ago

I can imagine it. Do you think Europe could maybe invade the UK? That seems reasonable.

[-] cro_magnon_gilf@sopuli.xyz 26 points 5 months ago

She isn't the same person who broke the internet in the IT crowd though

[-] jacksilver@lemmy.world 15 points 5 months ago

I had the same exact thought the first time I saw her. They look surprisingly similar.

Putin is the dictator of Russia

[-] No_Eponym@lemmy.ca 26 points 5 months ago

A dictatorship is a system of government where the one person gets to help everyone out by making all the tough and boring governmenty decisions. But it’s also a system where the the one person making the decisons can be a really bad person, and therefore can make really bad decisions. So, yeah, swings and roundabouts.

[-] dumbcrumb@lemmy.world 16 points 5 months ago

Look up cunk on earth

[-] TheBlue22 20 points 5 months ago

Yeah, that ugly asshole has no sense of humour. He would have probably killed her 5 minutes in

[-] BeMoreCareful@lemmy.world 16 points 5 months ago

Philomena must be protected!

I am not working and I would still put money in the GoFundMe for this if one existed.

[-] darthsid@lemmy.world 11 points 5 months ago

She would not survive after…

[-] Imgonnatrythis@sh.itjust.works 24 points 5 months ago

HE would not survive after.

[-] RizzRustbolt@lemmy.world 11 points 5 months ago

I would be interested in hearing her take on Palestine.

[-] ours@lemmy.world 14 points 5 months ago

Last time she talked about Israel or the Jews she lost her script and they joke sensored the whole thing. I can expect pretty much the same for Palestine.

[-] SubArcticTundra@lemmy.ml 12 points 5 months ago

She'd probably think that a Palestine is a type of fruit
