The nation of Belarus, a leftover from the old Soviet Union, is all upset and in therapy because Swedish democracy activist types organized an invasion of paratrooper teddy bears, each one bearing a message of peace and human rights and such.
Here’s the story: Belarus expels Sweden’s envoy after teddy bear incident
Have you heard of a better prank? Putting a bunch of Crazy Glue on the toilet seat doesn’t compare.
Another headline: Belarus admits air invasion by teddy bears
Is there video? Oh yes.
Teddy Bear paratrooper people of Sweden, I salute your creativity and courage. Belarus could have scrambled MiG‘s to shoot you out of the sky. But no, you flew low and steady, allowing the brave teddy bear paratroopers to successfully deploy their chutes and accomplish their mission of peace and tolerance. Well done.
