The Editor of Pravda Gets A Gift From Australia

The editor of Pravda was awaiting a call from his Rome bureau for more news on the mysterious death of the Russian deputy Ambassador to Italy whose bloodless stone cold dead body was found in the apartments of a Vatican cardinal.

(For more details please read yesterday’s vampire novel chapter: )

His secretary brought in a package that had just been delivered by courier.

The package read,


Well that was nice of them, the editor of Pravda thought.

Especially given the recent cool relations between Australia and Russia.

In the wake of the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in which all 298 passengers including 38 Australians were killed.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said they were “murdered with Russian support”.

Mr. Abbott was set to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin next month at the G-20 Summit in Brisbane.

Mr. Abbott told reporters yesterday, “Look, I’m going to shirtfront Mr. Putin. You bet I am.”

Shirtfronting is an Australian football term which means aggressively charging and knocking down one’s opponent.

Said Tony Abbott, “I’m going to say to Mr. Putin that Australians were murdered. They were murdered by Russian-backed rebels using Russian-supplied equipment.”

So Pravda had said in an English language opinion piece editorial yesterday that Mr. Abbott was “insolent” and Australia had a “colonial chip on its shoulder”.

And now the Australian government had sent him the editor of Pravda a gift.

That was very nice of them indeed.

Letting bygones be bygones.

The editor of Pravda opened the box
and inside was a little koala bear teddy bear wearing an Australian football team shirt.

The little koala teddy bear had a string attached to him.

So the editor of Pravda pulled the string and the little koala said in Russian, “Give me a hug. Give me a hug.”

So the editor of Pravda gave the little koala teddy bear a hug and the bear exploded emitting the fragrance of koala dung all over him.

Of course it was not only the fragrance of koala dung that was emitted all over him.

“What the Hell is this all over my shirt?” The editor of Pravda screamed.

To be continued.
