Introducing Vladamir Putin: Former KGB Agent, Current Russian Leader, Future Calvin Klein Model 38153

Following a semi-disastrous group lunch at Borough Food & Drink [Ed: Jeffrey Chodorow’s kitschy new enterprise, and home to the worst roasted duck salad in all the land] your enterprising young Jossip editors were sitting at our desks, wishing we’d ordered the harder-to-ruin BLT sandwich while simultaneously trying to block out the crazy ramblings of our all-too-audible officemates and marveling about how today is the slowest, least eventful news day in the world.

And then, as luck would have it, we received the following email missive from the indefatigable Intern Wendy.

“I LOOOVE FoxNews.com,” she writes, in what we can only interpret as unbridled sincerity. “This is on their front page right now,” she adds, referring to a topless photo of Russian prez Vladamir Putin (semi-appropriately captioned, “Ravishing Russian: Vladimir Putin poses stripped to the waist, fishing rod in hand.”)

All of which left us with three burning questions:

1. When is Putin going to have an “Abs-Off” with Barack Obama?
2. How in the hell did 1/2 Hour News Hour fail?

And, of course, where in the hell is Men’s Health’s Dave Zinczenko when you (finally!) need him?

Holly Oligarchs! Gorvachev in Vuitton ad, Putin in CK ad, I guess Russian politicians are replacing Brazilian guys as the new ???IT Boys??? of fashion.
