Russia Makes It Funny: Communist Party organ Pravda ["Truth"] updates its play for the weird news niche with a skewed take on the blogging aesthetic, with links to Romanesko New World Disorder.
A lot of people like going to saunas. A sauna used to be associated with cold beer and a company of friends. Now the situation has changed a bit: going to a sauna implies some sort of sexual activities and even perversion sometimes. Steam, beer and friends have been pushed into the background. Since people love mixing business with pleasure, let us try to find out, to which extent the sauna entertainment is good, and to which extent it is bad.

Pravda.ru isn't the 'Communist party organ', which shut down in 1991. It's basically Ananova.ru. Hence the links to Fark and company on the front page.

This site is great. It's been a while since I've taken a good look at it. Thanks for the reminder, Hairy.

Wow, their grasp of English spelling and grammar has improved much since Fark started linking to it. Probably what hapens when all of your traffic comes from a US-based website.
