Russia must regain its pre-revolutionary status as the country with the best lavatories in the world, an official said on Wednesday.

Here I sit, broken-hearted.

Paid a kopek, but only farted.

I especially like the female version of the Rodin sculpture...

So...no more low flow toilets, then?

I guess they're tired of smelling like being number two.

In Russia, toilet flush YOU.

i betcha their Peters aren't as Great as they say

Having been to the then Soviet Union in 1986, I can tell you that bathrooms on the whole were appalling and public ones were akin to an open cesspool.

In comparison the public restroom in the old Yankee stadium was sweetness and light.

Are you sure they weren't talking about retaking Latvia?

maybe that was latrinia.
i guess they want to be #1 in #1.......and #2...

So...they're saying that in, say, 1916, if you traveled twenty miles outside Moscow or St. Petersburg, you'd encounter sparkling tiled restrooms with cedar-scented air fresheners?

I'm thinkin' "pit" is more like it (with Peters being the pendulums)

i think they're gonna need more boffins

In their defense it is awfully cold in Russia. I saw Dr. Zhivago and almost froze to death just watching it.

I can picture George C. Scott turning to Peter Sellers and saying: "WE'RE GONNA HAVE A SH*T SHAFT GAP WITH THE RUSKIES !" as the bombs go off.

Putin's tootin'
Tootin' like Rasputin.

Ivan the Terrible is the Russian version of Montezuma's Revenge.

The Bowl-sheviks really knew their toilets.

Wanta pull a good prank on them? Send them our low flow toilets as a "Gesture of Goodwill" from their friends in America. Set em back another 20 years.

NC, Dr. Zhivago is best viewed on the hottest day of summer. Cools you right down.
