A PROPOS OF: COMING ACROSS THE BLOG OF A CERTAIN POPULAR TV-PERSONALITY IN RUSSIA

The following quote from the great Russian satirist, whose 90th birthday falls on this year, pertains to some certain famous TV- and radio-personality in Russia with a nightingale-specific last name. Those living in Russia or watching Russian television from time to time will know immediately the indivudual YT is referencing:

— Vasya, what do you think that nightingale is singing about?

— It’s friggin’ hungry, that why it’s singing.

Mikhail Zoshchenko, “Sentimental Novellas”
