Russia may be trying to slowly take over Ukraine, but the former Soviet satellite has bigger problems on its hands–like a blog taking over seats in the Ukrainian parliament.
Claiming that his fellow members of parliament don’t show up for their jobs as often as they should, Borislav Bereza has brought a grey blob to sit in one of the empty seats next to him. The plush blob has been a popular meme in Russia and Ukraine in recent years, and that has seemingly translated into a seat in government. As absurd as an internet meme in a leadership role might seem to Americans, apparently it’s possible there. Bereza even sat the blob behind the podium.
What does it want? What if it multiplies? What if Ukraine falls under blob rule?
Bad news, folks. There’s a rather large blob of goo floating around in the Chukchi Sea right now. We don’t know what it is or what it wants. We know it’s big, we know it’s alive and we know that it’s floating with the current. The U.S. Coast Guard has made attempts to establish contact on hailing frequencies, but so far, the goo has not responded.
But, there’s good news: most people don’t know where the Chukchi Sea is, or that there is one on the planet in the first place. So if you don’t know where it is, that is strong evidence that it doesn’t exist, right?
It’s off the coast of Alaska, like way up there. So even if the blob does make landfall, it will have to travel miles and miles and miles before it will be able to attack humans.
