ANYONE KNOW HOW TO SAY 'HOLY CRAP' IN RUSSIAN?
You know, when you've had three daughters, two divorces and a head-on collision (the collision was easiest), you don't shock easily. But this? This video of a baby miraculously averting death in a crash on a Russian highway infested with tractor-trailers? This is the wildest thing I have ever seen. A friend of mine tipped me off to this video, which I watched over and over and over again ... at work, I admit it. And as I watched it, a few deep and, if I may say so, very insightful thoughts occurred to me.
In an analysis worthy of the BBC, I present them to you here, in no particular order:
A) This baby was obviously being watched over by whatever they call God in Russia.
(Editor: "Putin." They call him "Putin." He makes them, otherwise it's Pussy Riot all over again.)
B) They're not big on car seats in Russia.
C) The winters we used to get in Canada have moved to Russia.
D) Whoever was holding that video camera has a warped sense of priorities.
E) What. The. Hell. Is in. That other bundle? (Editor: Mother-in-law.)
Watch this very short video for yourself and see if the same thoughts don't occur to you. Fasten your seatbelt and click here for the link to THE LUCKIEST BABY ALIVE! (Note: The second version explains what really happened here.)
