According to my Intermediate students, there are many people who believe that Putin is a zombie. I had never heard this before, so I was simply delighted to hear it. I mean, NOW WE’RE TALKIN’!! I just Google-d it, to see what I could find and the first page didn’t show me anything promising. Nothing even Russian!
Apparently, it’s a running joke with serious-ish undertones. I asked why, and they said that it may be because of how he looks, or because he just won’t die. Hm. That last bit is a bit scary, actually.
This site has a good photo, at least.
I think I’ll go buy a gun. I have to be able to shoot him in the head, so I better start practicing now.
