Russians Have Balls

Unfortunately, not many Americans do:   An angry mob was waiting outside of Ukraine’s parliament today, and they were not playing games. When they spotted Economic Development Party member Vitaly Zhuravsky leaving the building, they grabbed him and threw his ass right into a dumpster. It’s not clear exactly what Zhuravsky did to deserve getting…
