"QUANTUM SHOT" #181


Learn to read political leaders like an open book

A few weeks back we published a chart of Putin's emotions:

However, since its publication here new evidence came to light, and it seems like Russian President Vladimir Putin DOES have various emotional expressions, after all.
So we heartily apologize for the initial misleading formation, and publish this rough guide to his official and unofficial grins, smirks and funny faces:

...is he Agent Smith incarnate?



or Russian saintly king?

Continuing the art theme, here is a big mural depicting the whole russian political scene:

... other politicians could be just as expressive:

We can even catch a glimpse of Putin's successor:

Darn! And I used to think you were so on the ball! Seriously, before mocking other politicians, have you checked out your George Bush recently? There's no question he considers himself King and his expressions are 1000 times stupider than Putin's!

Dear Alicia,

Let me assure you, the thought has crossed my mind. Alas, Good Old Bush's faces can be found in every bookstore; there are wall calendars issued every year. Too obvious. But still... check out "Presidents and Babies" post from December 2006 :)

The top serious of pictures needs to add "Murderous."

Thanks for the slaughter of thousands of Chechens, Putin, not to mention the Slaughter of free speech in your country.

RIP Anna Politkovskaya

I think you mean to blame Yeltsin for the Chechens Jess

Damn him for killing those people, that were trying to kill his people

Free speech is relative and a loaded privilege that idiots abuse for their own personal fame and gain

Think of all the things you cannot say in any free society... the list is endless

Remember Jess, there are two sides to every coin
