You’re light on your payments again Andrei.  If we discover you’ve been holding out, you’ll be treated to a reunion with your cousins at the bottom of the Moskva.

    This is nonsense… who would come up with an idea like this? :/

  2. TheBoss Says:

    I’m learning Russian right now and this site has helped greatly. But, I need more translations to augment my understanding. Please continue to help me.

  3. tastouch Says:

    And sleep with the fishes?

  4. Reid Says:

    Don’t trust it, TheBoss. I can see in the message the words “work”, “5 minutes”, and “where is this”, none of which feature in the ‘translation’. The words ‘Andrei’ and ‘Moskva’ are absent, too.

    Not that there aren’t lolz to be had…

  5. alex Says:

    Definitely don’t learn russian from this site!.

    Part of what is so funny is how totally silly the “translations” are in comparison to what it really says in russian.

  6. Rinky Dinky Says:

    I is sooo tru. )))) I do it every day.

    “Really, I can get ready for work in five minutes…it’s just 2 hours go into finding my stuff…where the heck did I put that lipstick?!”

  8. Fluent Says:

    Sadly, none of these are translations. As in, there is no “between the lines”, this is just stereotype mongering. I have looked at all the photos in this series, and it appears that the English commentary for each one was created by someone whose sole knowledge of anything Russian/Eastern block comes from reading the Gulag Archipelago. Definitely not someone who actually suffered from prosecution himself, or had any family members who did — my grandfather was in the Gulags and neither he or his friends would ever make light of it.
    The Russian commentary is actually pretty funny and sweet, in a non-political sort of way (well, except for the two kittens fighting:)

    To Fluent,
    I was born and raised in Russia and I find this pretty damn funny. If you can’t see the humor in this then maybe you should go for a swim… 🙂

    That’s it Fluent. Stand up for motherland! Strike down anyone who disrespects her and her people!

  11. Harold Says:

    We, ugly Americans, sure do love to laugh – so long as its @ others’ expense. Someone hx0rz this site already. Lame.

  12. Trollicious Says:

    This site is a troll’s dream… even when a troll says he is going to use the site to learn Russian [[ 😉 TheBoss]] everyone takes him seriously!! Plus you have Fluent floating around attempting to put down the site, and yet reading every single new entry… ❤

  13. Anna Says:

    “Light”? “Late” maybe?

  14. Rolf Says:

    Light, as in paying less than what is expected. Basically this Andrei is trying to skim money from his higher ups.

  15. Anna Says:

    Rolf: What a delightfully bizarre construction. Too bad it sounds so much like a mispronunciation of “late”, otherwise I’d adopt it for daily use.

  16. Rolf Says:

    You can substitute short for light since short is another euphemism for paying less than required/necessary.

    A neutred cat means little if you don’t watch your condoms.

  18. Savvy Says:

    I honestly think the bickering commentary here is funnier even than some of the pictures…

  19. fishboy Says:

    I’m totally with you Savvy – I came for the lolcats but stayed for the comments.
