Ukrainian Legislature Eggings Preferable To Sitting Through Anything Involving Tom Coburn

In case you have not yet seen this video of irate Ukrainian legislators tossing eggs, tomatoes, and smoke bombs at each other in a dispute over allowing Russia to continue using Black Sea port, by all means do watch: It is certainly more exciting than listening to a bunch of Senators use bad words. It may seem shocking and unparliamentary until you consider the fact that the lawmakers already had umbrellas on hand in the chamber. This is probably just the way they do things on Tuesdays.

Call me when they're tossing Faberge eggs.

…What was up with that Atari-Era Vector-Graphic display that went off at 0:18?

…and then it hit me. It's the Egg-Pong Scoreboard. Clearly, dudes in the back row for the win!

On the Today Show, they said it was Russia. Pitiful. And then Al considered whether the Dandy in his troupe should always carry an umbrella, too.

(A couple of 'em were speaking in Russian, though.)

This is really going to set the record straight for all those who still think Ukrainians (or even Russians, god forfend) are just a bunch of thugs.

So proud of my country, you guys…

Indeed! Who says Latin America has the monopoly on fieriness?

I was afraid a soccer match might break out.

Bringing umbrellas doesn't seem as weird to me as someone bringing eggs and a smoke bomb(???). Was that blue / yellow tarp somehow participatory in making that smoke? More entertaining than Korean legislature fights though.

Hey, U.S. Senate, looks like somebody is coming for your "world's greatest deliberative body" title…
