An endless source of laughter

[ #28850 ]

Dear Log,

«In a calculated insult to their former comrades, the Georgians have printed the visa application forms in English and their own language. Most Russians do not speak English - and to the untutored eye, while beautiful to look at, Georgia's curling, hieroglyphic script is as incomprehensible as Arabic.

The lipsticked ladies in their kiosks are thus provided with an endless source of laughter as they contemplate the line of humiliated Russians grimacing and peering at their mysterious forms. »

--"Lipstick and liberty": Georgia's row with Moscow over the continued presence of Russian troops is more than just a tiff in a faraway place
