A Word of Caution to Gospodin Depardieu

In case you haven't heard, French movie star Gerard Depardieu is now a Russian.

He should keep in mind that Russians, even very wealthy ones, who displease Vladimir Putin tend to wind up in the Gulag. Or dead.

Update: Seems that Depardieu is not the only washed-up French actor who wants a Russian passport.

Update II: He now has his Russian passport. It would be fun to see what happens when Depardieu hands his Russian passport to a customs officer at Sheremetyevo Airport and the border cop finds out that the fat slob standing before him knows not a word of Russian. Since the word is that the Russian customs officers are about the only ones that are nastier and even more suspicious than their American counterparts, it could be a serious YouTube moment.

I'd stick with Belgium, but that's just me! :-)

Only thing wrong with Belgium is that they tend to have very large and heavily armed German tour groups which come for extended visits.

But that hasn't happened for awhile. :)

Is there a "ь" in "Депардью"?

Comrade Misfit said...

I tend to think not, but I would not be surprised if the Passport Office gives him a patronym of Дуракович.
