[reading,quote,nationalfrage] Russophobic QotD

Читаю "Good Omens" — запредельно чудесную коллаборацию Терри нашего Пратчета с Нилом нашим Гейманом. Удовольствия масса — best of both worlds, indeed, и этим всё сказано. Некоторые высоколобые наверняка обосрут, но нам, простым людям, самое то. Горячо рекомендуется.

А вот вам цитатка почти непосредственно в тему Бората Сагдиева. Вот как одиннадцатилетний Антихрист делит мир между приближёнными из своей гопницкой команды:

"We could all have a quarter of the world each. Like, you'! — he pointed to Pepper, who recoiled as though Adam's finger were a white­hot poker — "could have Russia because it's red and you've got red hair, right? And Wensley can have America, and Brian can have, can have Africa and Europe, an', an' —"

Even in their state of mounting terror the Them gave this the con­sideration it deserved.

"H‑huh," stuttered Pepper, as the rising wind whipped at her T‑shirt, "I don't s‑see why Wensley's got America an' all I've g‑got is just Russia. Russia's boring!"

Disclaimer: Основным объектом сатиры в романе безусловно является Англия, а в России действие не происходит вообще.
