Soon we will all be monkeys

Thanks to Russia for opening the Friday thread: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...e-MONKEYS.html

Soon we will beat the Chinese virus with the monkey vaccine.

Just tells me the Russian vaccine isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Cool, I always liked Planet of the Apes.

And yes, this does not sound like their cocktail is doing wonders.

Would Trump turn into King Kong if he takes the vaccine?

Re: Soon we will all be monkeys

Surely if we get a vaccine from monkeys it would immunise us from imminent simian conversion, rather than the opposite?

Are you seriously trying to prove this wrong?

I must have missed the bit where it said that it was supposed to increase intelligence.

You can't blame the Russians for not trusting the content of syringes.

Their campaign used to be better?

Supposedly that campaign is running in Russia. Don't they use cyrillic letters anymore in Putin country?

Before you say it must be written with Latin letters, the first word in the letter from the chairmen shows what its name looks like in cyrillic (according to deepl.com). While it may be plausible that they didn't change the letters on the folder Boris holds, I would think they'd at least add cyrillic to the tent to make the connection for those unfamiliar with the Latin alphabet.
