Kim Jong Un hits Obama with the dreaded "Your mum"

"A run-of-the-mill report on Kim Jong Un attending the test fire of a rocket showed a series of photos of the Supreme Leader enjoying himself far too much as he farts about with weapons of mass destruction. Oh-ho! Says an internet wag." #KimMischief

Contrary to my previous belief, there is one more joke left in Downfall.

Took me a second to get the Hitler one.

There are infinite Downfall jokes left. That's the problem.

That pudgy little fucker is so lucky. You know, having his own dictatorship and stuff. He really should cut down on the Pop-Tarts, though.

Can someone explain the Bolokov one?

"Bollocks" is English slang for testicles; Hitler was reputed to be missing one.

So for a non-native speaker, what British dialect do you need to speak to make "Ivor Bolokov" sound like anything related to one or more missing bollocks?

Almost all British and British-derived accents drop terminal r's; most of Canada and the USA are anomalies in English in that regard. So 'Ivor' would, in a lot of places, sound roughly like 'Ivuh.' Terminal v's in Russian, if I've got it right, should really be pronounced somewhere between 'v' and hard-f anyway.

Achievement of this evening: finding out how to spell the following punchline to a schoolboy joke: "Oojanikabolokov (Уджяникаболоков?)"

The joke being "What do you call a Russian man with 3 testicles?"
