Title: Swole corps des pages - literally
Post by: Превед on August 02, 2017, 07:18:42 AM
Queen EII's grand-nephew and former page and train carrier Arthur Chatto has announced to the world via Instagram how he has beefed up and become buff. See http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/5133043.html (http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/5133043.html)
The best comment is:
Это ж сколько весит её шлейф, если паж в такой форме?!
=
How much does her train weigh, if her page is in such shape?!
LOL!

(Note that the Russian word for "train" in this context is шлейф, directly from German Schleif.)

More yummy corps des pages, or rather cute air cadets, in a homoerotic hommage parody that evidently has caused a national outrage and then a massive support wave in Russia (read the text below video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziobVkPRKto (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziobVkPRKto)

The massive show of support (among them tankers dancing their own hommage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5GRw-yl5dU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5GRw-yl5dU)) is a sign that Russia's young are not OK with Putin's use of homophobia as a political tool.

Liberal Novaya Gazeta headlines the news with rewriting the Russian pop song Танцуй, пока молодой, мальчик - Dance while you are young, boy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLF74jpYMaA) as Танцуй, пока молодой, летчик -  Dance while you are young, airman.
