Stalin as Repo Man.
A Ukrainian heating company has put up posters of Stalin around the city of Donetsk to strongly encourage citizens to pay their past-due bills. "It was the nearest we could get to intimidating people without sending round the heavy mob," said Alexandra Semchenko, deputy director of the state-owned Donetsk Heating Company. Risking limbs and life, a copyranter operative from the area has obtained an image of one of the posters (right). Pasting the copy into my always-accurate free translator reveals this: "Pay your heating bills on time Comrades, or your current leaders will purge this bourgeois burg fasting than you can say 'Yakov Smirnoff!'"
