What, did you uphold the revisionist theses of the 20th Party Congress and the usurper Khrushchev?
That bald fucker had no business succeeding Iosef's transcendent moustache.
I'm looking forward to seeing Death of Stalin.
Have you read the graphic novel? Very compelling stuff.
Had no idea about that

issuing correction on a previous post of mine, regarding the corn campaign of Comrade Khrushchev. you do not, under any circumstances, "gotta hand it to him"

How'd that slip by you, man? Getcomics.info probably has both volumes as pdf's, but it was released as a single book this summer in anticipation of the film. Darkly humourous, capturing the evil absurdity of totalitarian bureaucracy.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I've got a lot of problems with Ianucci away from Alan Partridge, but I thought Death of Stalin was great. Very bleakly funny.

Looking forward to seeing Michael Palin in something again.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)

The role plays wonderfully to Palin's strengths.
