17 October 2013. Only in Russia! Now There be Some Giant Arbuzi in the Cossack Land, I Be Told!

00 Boy with giant watermelons in Krasnodar Krai. 17.10.13

______________________________

A boy stands between two big watermelons at the “Watermelon Paradise” festival in the village of Strelka (Krasnostrelskoye Rural SettlementTemryuk Raion) in Krasnodar Krai (that be Cossack country, chum). Any inferences, dirty or otherwise, reside solely in the mind of the beholder… now, I didn’t say anything, did I? You wanna know what “arbuzi” are… why, that’s just “watermelons” in Russian… didn’t everybody know that?

14 May 2011. Only in Russia! Piranha Tussles with Cossack in Rostov-on-Don… Guess Who Won?

That’s a no-brainer! Obviously, the Cossack won! Did you have ANY doubts about the outcome? D’oh! All that to the side, it’s strange to find a piranha in the Black Sea. Nevertheless, the Cossacks are STILL the toughest hombres on the block… wanna rumble? Remember… they whip piranhas…
