Ukrainian Astronomers Officially Name a Star "Putin is a D-ckhead"
- -

The Kepler Astroseismic Science Consortium has a funding project called the Pale Blue Dot Project, which allows anyone to purchase naming rights to a star for the astronomically (see what I did there?) low price of $10.00. A group of Ukrainian astronomers did just that, and elected to name a star "Putin-Huilo," with "huilo" being Ukrainian slang for "d-ckhead," "a-hole," or "dipsh-t."

The astronomers got the name from Ukrainian Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsia's now-famous outburst in June, in which he yelled "Putin is a d*ckhead!" in front of an angry crowd outside the Russian embassy in Kiev. The diss may seem rather pedestrian to the rest of us, but it's rather unique coming from a government official. The Kremlin called for Deshchytsia's resignation after the outburst, to which Deshchytsia presumably replied "lol no."

Russian Internet Makes Fun of Vladimir Putin for "Catching" and Kissing a Supposedly Massive Fish

Not long after the "catch" Russian Internet users starting uploading their own catches of Pike which were apparently lighter than Putin's but were way bigger. They speculate that Putin had weights inside the fish to make him look like the rugged outdoorsman he wants to portray.

Didn't you know that whenever you're President and about to do something extremely cool like catching an impossibly huge fish, finding some archaeological treasure, or even giving thumbs up at a particular protest you have to make sure there is always some sort of footage so everyone knows it is completely genuine?
