Cyrillic is like the one thing you think of when you think of Russia, after vodka and possibly samovars or bears

There's tons of twitters that are like "America MOM #1 [American flag emoji] [string of backwards Rs upside down Ls and poo poo]

Of course the image of Russia as a land of perma drunk bear tamers is completely PC.

Yeah they got fancy rugs, several types of borscht, potato, dash cams, meteor, Putin, couple writers and composers, ballet, stark taigas, a polar bear, transiberian rail, nukes, pussy riot, sunflowers, dogs that can operate subway terminals, hilarious Olympics OoOo*, the world's deepest borehole, practically the only working way to get supplies to the space station, fatalistic youth, a mafia, several famous guns, beer in two liters, fermented tea. If anyone thinks any country is just the sum of some things in it they are an obvious retard.

Who cares it's a well known thing that Russian bots are real and having the stupid noob av reference that, is funny, to me

That's why I had it say something real, instead of just being gibberish. I was thinking of it as being an in-joke for people who can read the language.

The whole thing isn't really about poking fun at Russia as a whole, as I understand it -- it's about poking fun at the corruption in their government. A lot like how not every joke at the expense of Trump is targeting all Americans.

You know I would try to think of something funny to put here but ill just pass on that and threaten people with a + 2 board with a nail in it.


If we can't have the we we currently have I want this one but the stupid newbie in Cyrillic.

I just think Cyrillic looks cool is all. I've got a few Magic the Gathering cards in it.

So the same as Trump? Why replace the newbie avatar if you are going for the same low hanging political fruit that is going to look terribly gauche rather than edgy a month from now?

Lol trump will be a hilarious joke for the next hundred years at least. Russian bots are not going away soon either. The tax man can change the av whenever he feels like so if it becomes embarrassing to the dignity of Something Awful he can just change it again.

Save our dead gay forum you ungrateful nobs.

Don't worry guys, the forums will be gone soon anyway and then you won't have to look at the Trump avatar anymore. That's the worst one we've ever had and people still just whine about it rather than putting five entire dollars into the Save SA/buy Lowtax a new skeleton fund.


I like this, but if the animation is a problem than Russian bot or squished doll face. The latter is more in the spirit of being a stupid newbie, but the colors on the former will make people buy real avs faster.

I like the syringe. The stupid newbie status is generally just a warning that a poster is an unknown quantity, so maybe we could push the screening angle.

I whipped up a rough incorporating the horrible anime eyes kitty idea from earlier in the thread.



The baby is a time honored tradition though. It might be a shame to throw it out with the bathwater.
