Retro Snap: What Handsome Man Did This Become?

Vladimir Putin young

You’ve probably seen him recently…

Because you’re really into Russian politics. It’s Vladimir Putin! I don’t really know what inspired this. It sort of came out of no place. I mean, he’s dealing with a lot of protests in Russia and leveling some accusations against the Clintons for inciting unrest, so that’s why I happened upon any kind of picture of him, but mostly I’m just tired of picking movie stars for this feature. And Vladimir Putin is sort of interesting looking, right? Sort of? He had lanky hair as a kid, which maybe explains why he periodically skis down volcanoes. And does judo! So! Vladimir Putin. He is who you are looking at, today. Sorry I kind of lured you in with that “handsome man” tag. Here is a picture of him hanging out with his pet tiger:

    Why do you think so many Russian women swoon over him?

    And Porkchop. . . Damn. To borrow from, well, the internet: I have the weirdest boner right now.

    I’ve had a crush on him forever.
