Russians tell aliens to suck on a fat one

хуй to you too, mate

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Doubtless inspired by the UK's huge farmer's arse, Russian wags recently decided to send a message of their own to visiting aliens, and have succeeded in getting their greeting onto Yahoo! Maps:

"Cock" as seen atop Russian flats on Yahoo! Maps

For those of you not up to speed on Russian sexual slang, хуй translates as "cock". And what a collossal cock it is too, as these snaps of the work in progress attest.

Sadly, the giant cock has not yet popped up on Google Earth. We expect the powers that be will move quickly to update their servers in the interests of intergalactic relations. ®
