Ah Comrades, remember Pravda? Правда or “The Truth” was a leading newspaper of the Soviet Union and an official organ of the Central Committee of the Communist Party — at least until the late, great Boris Yeltin closed it down in 1991.
However the name lives on at pravda.ru — and Lenin would be turning in his grave at this lowest of the low in tabloid trash. I love it!

Men lie for no reason because women make them
Various media outlets portray breasts differently
Fake Brad Pitt, 77, lives in New Hampshire
Miss Universe contestants pose in bikini
“Is your dog in heat and humping anything it can wrap its horny little legs around? Are you constantly having to pry your promiscuous pooch off the legs of guests, parents and members of your church? … It’s easy, all you should do is to buy a sex doll for dogs.”

But the best bit for me? The fact that all the advertising on Pravda is provided by that traditional communist institution, Google. Sweet.
