The Joke: You thought it was annoying, in a funny sort of way, how Moscow's pafos forced you to pay ridiculous prices for shitty food, shitty coffee, shitty hotel rooms, shitty movie theaters and shitty sushi? Welp, now you can pay ridiculous prices for shitty tea. Why's that? Cuz dyevs demand it! Hey, if that's not like some kind of Woody Allen movie, then we don't know what is!

Sad Clown factor: We have contracted bloated stomachs and gas on several occasions when we were forced to share elitny chai with our girlfriends.

47. Jailing Of Mikhail Khodorkovsky

The Joke: Did Vladimir Putin know what was going on in the Yukos crackdown? Were his "siloviki" advisors leading the Tsar astray? Is impartial justice simply taking its course? Is Khodorkovsky a victim of anti-Semitic authoritarianism? Why did the Western elite who once promised him the moon abandon him at his moment of need? Ho-ho-ho, these are just some of the many zany moments that make the jailing of Russia's richest man the local equivalent of Scary Movie 3 for the sheer quantity of site gags.

Sad Clown factor: Western investment said to have come to a halt, meaning that the same "average Russians" who cheered on Khodorkovsky's arrest may not have the kinds of jobs they'll need to get the TVs they'll need to watch and enjoy Khodorkovsky's persecution.

48. Russian Duma Elections

The Punchline: The Russians just overwhelmingly voted in a Duma that is anti-capitalist, anti-neo-liberal, and anti-Western. What the hell are we doing here still? Whoa! The hijinks are just beginning!

Sad Clown factor: If your name tag lists "SPS" or "Yabloko" as the name of your company, then you are indeed a sad clown.

49. The Neo-Con Mass Hallucination Network

The Joke : For 30 years the American Right has been developing its own closed-loop communication network, enabling believers to use safe talk-radio stations, magazines, newspapers, TV networks and chatrooms to avoid any contact with hostile reality. The hard work paid off in hilarious fashion over the past year, as every single thing went horribly, hopelessly, obviously wrong -- and these people just turned up their talk-radio volume, hummed Hail to the Chief and pretended everything was fine. The war's a nightmarish disaster; there were no WMDs; the budget surplus has been transformed into multi-trillion deficit; everybody in the world hates America's guts; but nobody is admitting anything's wrong in Limbaugh-land. This kind of comedy isn't for everybody, but if you like your humor really black, there's pure enjoyment in listening to the ever-shriller chorus of believers humming away as burning roofbeams crash down among the congregation.
