My Russian is very rudimentary, but these don't make much sense. Google Translate?--ZooGuard (talk) 08:09, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

My additions certainly are, and I doubt Sam or HK know Russian either. Care to improve? Peter Monomorium antarcticum 08:20, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
Here's the Russian Wikipedia article about the "Russian reversal", and here is another list. Most of the generic jokes are not funny, though. The best one I could find so far is "В Америке результаты выборов определяют президента. В России президент определяет ре—" Making jokes that rely on wordplay is best left to native speakers.----ZooGuard (talk) 13:42, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

I just typed "No no no no no no, you're doing it wrong. In Soviet Russia, article reads you!" into Google Translate. Probably should've used fake Cryllic instead. The Heidelberg Kid (talk) 15:37, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Although I do want to learn Russian someday. The Heidelberg Kid (talk) 15:38, 6 February 2012 (UTC)


Unfortunately, I can't understand what is written in the article. This Russian is very bad. Make, somebody, English version of the article and I'll translate it into Russian much better.--Mr. B 23:38, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

It's a bad, and short, list of 'russian reversal' jokes, mechanically translated (hence the unreadable result). Along with an equally badly translated 'stub' template. It would be nice if you could fix it, but alternatively it could simply be deleted. Peter Monomorium antarcticum 23:48, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I would fix it if there would be English version of these jokes with original English context. Now I don't even understand what do these jokes talking about. And now I'll fix the stub-template.--Mr. B 22:00, 19 February 2012 (UTC)


Unfunny orphaned stub.--ZooGuard (talk) 18:23, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

I had a look at the deleted page and I don't want it for Liberapedia. It's worthless. Proxima Centauri (talk) 18:35, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
