Knocked up for Frigidaire
Russia’s new Military Industrial Sexual Complex
September 14, 2007
Sex and violence; kids and bombs. Russia is catching up with popular trends fast. To rebuild their declining population the Russian government is offering cash and prizes — including refrigerators — to citizens who can pop out a kid on Russia Day by getting pregnant on Conception Day. Meanwhile the Russian army says they’ve tested the ‘father of all bombs’, a vacuum device capable of emitting shockwaves as powerful as a nuclear weapon. Where is Nancy Reagan’s “just say no to drugs” campaign when we need it? The Russian’s have got to be on something stronger than Vodka.
Apparently Russians are as desperate for major appliances as their government is for population growth. Officials said that since launching the Preggers for Putin campaign, Ulyanovsk region’s birth rate this year was 4.5 per cent higher than the same period in 2006. On winning refrigerators for getting knocked up, Andrei Malykh, Ulyanovsk’s chief doctor, said: “The scheme is working. People want the prizes.”
While couples were drawing the curtains at home, the Russian military showed off their new bomb on television. ORT First Channel television showed a Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bomber dropping its payload over a testing ground, followed by a massive explosion. According to Russian generals, the bomb is four times more powerful than the American Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb or MOAB. “Every life form near it evaporated during the test.,” said a Russian General who paid us in U.S. dollars in order to remain anonymous. “If I were in that region I’d have been indoors banging my wife. Why risk your life when you could be winning major appliances.”
President Putin recently ordered his long-range nuclear bombers to “mount patrols” in international airspace for the first time since the Cold War. Putin also called the countries population crisis the most serious problem facing the country in his annual address to the nation last year. He introduced cash subsidies and prizes to encourage women to have more than one child. There’s been some confusion.
“When the President announced we were to mount patrols and have more kids, I was unsure of what he meant,” said bomber pilot Ivan Zarchov. “But after a couple of Vodka shots I figured out it’s my patriotic duty to screw women and the NATO Alliance. Putin’s plan started making sense to me then. I kind of like it.”
Andrei and Irina Kartuzov won this year’s “Give Birth to a Patriot on Russia Day” grand prize after the birth of their fourth baby. The car they received is a locally made SUV named the UAZ-Patriot. Prizes for getting knocked up include fridges, televisions and off-road vehicles. To win you simply give birth on the Russia Day holiday of June 12. “Things turned out okay I guess,” said Andrei. “We got a new son and a UAZ. We were kind of hoping for a daughter and an Isuzu.”
Since Mr Putin, an ex-KGB officer, came to power, Russia’s annual defense spending has been quadrupled and apparently so has the “get knocked up and become a patriot” budget. In Russia it’s now official that “dropping payloads” has double meaning.
In other news, Entertainment Weekly reports that Britney Spears is weighing whether to take payments from Russia to get knocked up again or payments from Planned Parenthood to never have another child.
