Surplus Russian Dairy Products

From English Russia:

1100 sets of “Cheetos” were given to families in need from the Tula region of Russia. The snacks were provided by the food fund “Rus”. Families with many children and physically challenged children benefited from the action. Some sets included “Lays” chips. The families shared photos with “Cheetos” with the words of gratitude “for tasty snacks”.

Foodbank Rus collects food surplus from manufacturing and redistributes it to the needy. From the website:

“The Foundation is the first foodbank in Russia and regularly cooperates with the Russian Orthodox Church, charity organizations and governmental authorities. In 2016 the Foundation, jointly with the Children’s Rights Commissioner for the President of the Russian Federation, launched the program of food assistance to low-income families with children “Food to Help Mum”.

Within the program, on a weekly basis, dairy goods are distributed among low-income families via the Department of Labor and Social Security of Moscow.”

Saturday Matinee – How We Do It

Folks, some of y’all have wondered how and why we choose videos for the Saturday Matinee Posts. Actually no one axed us, but here’s how we do it anyway.

First, we find something odd, like this one.  Then we apply advanced tublication, with links, to create a theme of sorts, and we run with it, like this:

Desert Bus Demo video. Woosk has a description of the game, and here’s a link to a related charitable fundraiser.

So now we’re lookin’ for bus in all the wrong places, and about all we find is The Who’s “Magic Bus,” one video of Roger Daltrey singing the annoying children’s song, and the Bus Boys,  featured here about a year ago.

Instead of a bus song, let’s look for a sub song instead:

Here are the Subdudes. Gris gris gumbo yaya!

Now we’re sittin’ and scratchin’ and still lookin’ for another sub song. Everybody’s already seen Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” video (including the Weird Al parody) and we find this:

Red Hot Chili Peppers, doing a Dylan/Punk/Funk mashup. Personally, I think it sucks, but it took cojones to do it, and that’s really what it’s all about.

But the theme/thread is not complete without a knot. At this point, we’re gonna take “sub” and drop one letter, leaving the letters U and B, and add the final score of a blowout soccer game.  The knot becomes obvious:

UB40‘s “Rat In The Kitchen” is a brit/reggae classic, and our post is complete.

But to be honest, sometimes we just throw up a bunch of last-minute unrelated videos and pretend that a lot of thought went into it, but you’ll never be able to tell the difference because we’re that good.

Even if you think the video posts are random, they aren’t. Around here there’s a reason for everything, even when there isn’t.

Have a great weekend. –Bunk
