‘Tell me HOW can Barack have MORE Twitter followers than me?’ demands Vladimir Putin to his social media advisors. ‘I post pictures of me being Rambo. I post pictures of me with pretty girls. I let people know what I think about human rights and I’ve been stirring the hornet’s nest in the Ukraine to goad the proleteriats. I’ve given Russians a direct line straight to moi where I’ll answer questions on our most pressing social and political issues. Yet STILL he has millions more following him. What the FUCK do I have to do?’
In case you hadn’t guessed, Vlad is a touch snaith of Barack.

A little gasp from being hugged too tightly.
