Sex for Money, Money having Sex? Ban on Russian ads depicting euro having sex with dollar. Immoral or are they just dancing?

I saw this image earlier today and I must say that it does look a bit like something is going on. And as such I whole-heartedly support the designer's humor.

I wonder if the problem was that Euro is shown topping Dollar.

Well, the dollar does seem pretty bent-over these days... I humbly beg our new Euro Overlords to use lube.

According to one view, the dollar's fall from grace is the result of a decision by the US government to abandon its "strong dollar" policy.

Also heard this morning, a lower US$ will have more US products being purchased world wide.

From the "man saws penis" link: Other cases include men who have had their penises bitten off by wives, lovers and dogs.

What the..?

So, does anybody know what ?????? ??? ?? ??? ???????? ??? means? I studied Russian many years ago, but even with the help of Babelfish I couldn't figure this out.

Heh, sorry about that. It worked in Preview. Let's try it in Unicode:

Журнал про то как делаются ден

If that doesn't work, I give up.

Naw, that can't be it, BlueTrain. I know it starts with "newspaper" at least.

Oh wait, duh. Not everybody is responding to me. I'm going to go away and be clueless now.

etoile: apparently this means: "A magazine about how money is made", according to a russian speaker over at Fistful of Euros...
