This past weekend the Russians celebrated April Fools Day by having a little fun at the Democrats’ expense. And it was beautiful!
From The Blaze:
In what could go down as one of the most interesting April Fools’ Day pranks of all time, the Russian Foreign Ministry posted on its Facebook page an audio file that supposedly showed the agency’s new switchboard message.
The message begins with, “You have reached the Russian Embassy. Your call is very important to us.”
“To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponent, press 1,” the recording continues (in both English and Russian). Users are then instructed to “press 2” in order “to use the services of Russian hackers.” For “election interference” requests, “press 3.”
BOOM! Now THAT is FUNNY!
You can hear the recording in the video below. It starts out in Russian and then switches to English.
The Associated Press showed off their journalism chops by confirming that the recording was indeed authentic.
Boy… a quick read through the works of Chekhov, Tolstoy, or Dostoyevsky and you wouldn’t think that the Russians have this much of a sense of humor, but apparently they do!
