Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime...
But sometimes, you just gotta give the guy the friggin' fish.

A lie told often enough becomes the truth

In 1969, American comedy troupe The Firesign Theatre released their second satirical comedy LP entitled "How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All," which famously featured this picture on its cover:


It took 47 years, but now that punchline has finally come full circle.

According to the French news agency AFP, since the February 2014 ouster of the ex-Soviet republic's Russian-backed president, and an April 2015 law banning public displays of communist symbols, large swathes of Ukraine have been erasing remnants of their totalitarian past.

Today it was reported that in Kalyny, a western Ukrainian village of about 5,000 people located just 12 miles from the European Union's eastern border, a street which used to honor Soviet founder Vladimir Lenin has now been officially renamed, ironically, after The Beatles' John Lennon.

While some streets have been renamed by the proposal of local communities, in the case of John Lennon Street, the governor of the region himself ordered the change.

I wonder, does this mean future releases of the Beatles' White Album in the Ukraine will have to be issued without "Back In The USSR?"
