russian book for misbehaving 1

In early 90s you could buy special children books for misbehaving kids in Russia.

This is an example of such a book. Kid, who is reading this book, is being promised many scary things to encounter if he doesn’t obey to mother or father. Here are some translations:

“You’ll fall deep inside a hole
if you don’t obey to your mom”

“If you plan not to listen to father
wild black cats would scratch your brother”

    When i was little, my dad told me ATMs worked by having little monkeys inside them. I believed that for years. Now that I work at a bank, I wish it were true!

    i dont understand this joke, some one please explain:
    Странного иракца, бредущего по пустыне в белой форме незнакомого образца, они заметили сразу. Весь взвод, укрывшись за “Хаммерами”, долго рассматривал его в бинокли,пытаясь обнаружить оружие, но тщетно. Похоже, сошедший с ума от ужаса, он брел, сам не зная куда. Из сострадания к несчатсному, решено было отвезти его в госпиталь. Разведчики быстро догнали одинокого иракца и окружили, разглядывая старомодную выцветшую форму и совершенно нелепую на их американский взгляд фуражку… Позднее единственный разведчик, выбравшийся живым из этой ужасной бойни, рассказал, что иракский смертник, перебивший весь авангард американской дивизии, повторял перед боем странную боевую мантру: – Zdravstvujte, lubjeznaya moja Katerina Matveevna…

      Sveta, meet the heritage of the best soviet films.
      Just I can’t explain the meaning of “pepelatz” and why it is so important to rotate “zapa”…

    • kirrilic is dead says:

    • Andrew Bond says:

      very funny joke!!!!^))))

    Кажется я начал понимать что такое виртуальное общение.
    Знакомых море, а трахаться не с кем.

  7. Lev Aranovich says:

    Tha boy in the second picture seems overly excited at the sight of wild beast.

  8. Boris says:

    Why did my comment disappear!??
    It’s as if someone [cough]administrator[/cough] is censoring them.

  9. fire says:

    you still like eating our wheat though, don’t you

  10. Andres says:

    Mr. Translator, you have bad Russian and bad sense of humour.

  11. Corné says:

    it is much like Struwelpeter…

  12. Smokes says:

    Good method to educate young society. hahah

  13. Linas Lituanus says:

    Nobody did stress the obvious facts that: (1) The book was issued not in ordinary Soviet times, but at the end of 1991. Who doesn’t know, the peak of the last Soviet crisis was then. (2) Looking from the printing quality and other features, it seems, that the booklet was printed in some second hand typography. — So, it was sold like a joke or a courisosity; perhaps this seemed profiteable for editors or so.

    I don’t think we shouldn’t make far-off conclusions on how Russians treat their children from this example.
