    t.A.T.u.

    Too bad t.A.T.u. waited until 2012 to reunite. The faux-lesbian pop stars could have had a go of it any other year. Now they are just faux propaganda.

    Six grannies from the "Buranovskiye Babushki" band

    Sorry, grannies! You may have won the honor of representing Russia at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, but dancing old ladies is pure camp. This isn't a John Waters movie. You're banned!

    Kirill I of Moscow

    What's there to say about Kirill I, the spiritual head of Russia's Orthodox church? Sure, he might be a driving force behind hateful anti-gay legislation, but he also knows how to rock pastels and cupcake hats.

    Putin and Medvedev bromance

    When asked about his "political marriage" with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Putin played coy: "We are friends, friends for many years ... And the way that we have arranged our work today -- it seems to me, we can be proud of this."

    The Merry Milkman

    This is real: Activists from the St. Petersburg arm of the All-Russian “People’s Council” recently sued the leading juice and dairy producer “Wimm-Bill-Dann" for the "pro-homosexual" imagery on their milk products. Poor Merry Milkman!
