      OMG Russians are so creative they have their own style of drawing and make their own cartoons, unlike poor trash backwards Americans who only read Japanese cartoons and cartoon poon, such a sad, disgusting inbred country, no wonder they are the laughing stock of the world, yuck! :(

    He kinda looks like a ‘grib’ himself

    Overall, pretty funny post. Reminds me of КОЗЬМА ПРУТКОВ, I don’t know how many of you people know him =)

    When I first brought up this page, Emilino Cornejo’s post was the first and ONLY post on the page. Somehow karabas posted afterward but still got the “first” spot. I dont know how that is possible – must be due to caching??. People make such a deal out of being FIRST and it doesnt even work right.

  9. Russian_NYC says:

    Can you explain the wheel part a little better?

  10. heatmiser says:

    Thats very interesting, but why do you think that they didn’t freeze the milk in little buckets instead? Easier to move and no poop! Do you remember what they poured the milk into to freeze it into wheel shape?

  11. Scotty Cordell says:

    This was Siberia, they didn’t make daily deliveries.They said one wheel lasted about a month.I wasn’t there and anyone who was, is too dead to ask.I saw the black and white photo back in the early seventies as my father was burning them to avoid the cold war paranoia of our neighbors.
    The cottage was in winter? with snow on it and had a round topped rough wooden door and the wheel was to the left of the door. I easily miss took it for a grinding wheel because it was light colored in the black and white photo.
    I remember it was about half as tall as the door,and I remember thinking it was a joke, until Mother added that you didn’t want to roll it through any animal poop on the way to the door…
