Russia Won't Recognize The Pirate Party Because It Doesn't Like The Name
from the hey,-it's-no-bull-moose dept
"piracy is an attack on sea of river craft, which is a criminal offense.'Why, yes, it is. Now will the Russian Justice Ministry claim the same thing the next time the entertainment industry comes calling about infringement?
Of course, the real issue is that the Justice Ministry apparently is unaware of how irony works, or at least doesn't believe that political party names should be ironic. Of course, now the rush is on to come up with a more acceptable name for the party. I vote for the "Party Names Aren't Literal" Party.
