A Lithuanian Facebook friend sent me this chain letter—its author unknown—that had made its way through Lithuanian e-mail and Facebook messages. My friend felt I might translate it. After reading, I realized that, as a global citizen, it was my civic duty to translate and share this important document.
I only wish I knew the original author so that I might buy them a drink.
Stenographic records of a recent United Nations Security Council meeting:
Chairman: Are there any proposals?
Churkin (Russia): Do you mind if I shit on the table?
Churkin: (Shits on the table before Klimkin, Ukraine) Thank you.
Ukrainian representative: Everyone saw it, right? Russia just shat on our table!
Churkin: You have no evidence.
Ukraine: It was your ass. The shit left your anus.
Churkin: Please present us with facts.
USA representative: Our experts have completed an analysis of the contents of this material. We have assembled coordinates to estimate its point of release. We conclude, without a doubt, that this is shit shat by Russia.
Churkin: Please provide us with proof
UK representative: This is appalling. Russia undoubtedly shat the shit. This cannot continue.
German representative: I suggest we consider the possibility of expressing our common concerns regarding Russia’s current behavior.
Churkin: Veto! (Shits again on Ukraine’s table.)
Ukraine: You saw, yes!? Here, again! Russia just shat on our table. Here’s the shit! Here’s the ass. Here, he’s pulling up his trousers!
UN chairman: If these facts are confirmed, we’ll have at our disposal a variety of possible responses.
Churkin: I’ll repeat. Provide us with a single bit of evidence!
Germany: We believed that sanctions would be effective. However, the stench here is only intensifying. We suspect that Russia is potentially shitting on Ukraine’s table.
Churkin: Provide us with the proof.
UN chairman: I move that we accept the resolution that we are all deeply shocked.
Churkin: Veto. (Shits on UN chairman’s table.)
Ukraine: You saw it, yes?! Here and now! Russia just shat all over the chairman’s table. Russia is dangerous and can at any moment shit on any European table.
Churkin: You’ve failed to provide a single bit of evidence we find acceptable.
US representative: The Pentagon has recorded the risking levels of stench wafting from the direction of Russia. We’ll have to consider the option of revoking Russia’s rights to shit during UN meetings.
Churkin: Veto. (Shits on Ukraine’s table.) You don’t have any proof. In fact, most of the evidence points to Ukraine shitting itself.
Ukraine: You saw that Russia just shat on our table once again.
German representative: It’s becoming increasingly complex to remain here. We invite both sides to a dialogue.
Churkin: Russia elects to exercise its right to a supplementary announcement. (Takes a plastic folder, employs it to scatter shit onto all UN member states.) Russia is a magnificent country and will not allow anyone to pressure us. Without providing us with any evidence, you have no right to dictate conditions. It’s best you now have a look at yourselves. You’re all shitheads. You’re sitting in shit, and the stench is wafting from you. Given this, how can you prescribe any behavior? Thank you for your attention. (Leaves the chamber, throwing the stained folder to the UN chairman and spitting on the US representative’s shoes)
UN chairman: Thank you all for expressing your positions. The next meeting scheduled to consider our concerns over Ukraine will begin after we have ventilated the room.
And now for something that only appears completely different. Here are some dashcam videos:
