Russia and The Stoned Fox.

"When British artist Adele Morse put her stuffed fox up for sale on eBay, she was surprised to get fan mail from Russia.... Unbeknown to Ms. Morse, her fox — sitting cross-legged, with a vacant stare on its face — had become an Internet sensation here...."

This explains it! In High School, I thought I was going out with "Stone Cold Foxes". My buddies just disagreed. They were apparently all Stoned Foxes? Or was I stoned? I'm confused.......

Ha! There are communist stoned fox truthers!

"... Stoned Fox also has at least one group of avowed enemies: a group of radical communists from St. Petersburg...

... "It's psychological warfare," says Mr. Malinkovich. "Unfortunately, this operation by foreign secret services was successful.""


Well, okay, maybe not "truthers" i.e. folks who insist on pushing a conspiratorial interpretation of a very well-known, even iconic event. But that's still a semi-paranoid way of stating things. Unless he was being ironic, which I guess I won't be able to tell from a freakin' news story's quote.

Whoa, whoa WHOA! Why in God's name is it being displayed in the Museum of Erotic Art (around 1:28 in the video)? Suddenly, this story's taken a really weird turn. 0_0

Museum of Erotic Art.

They exhibit a stuffed fox, but overlook the Chinese hairy leg stockings.

She almost seemed cute for a second until i saw that she had ear gauge holes large enough to have intercourse with. Why do people do that to themselves?

Maybe it's the expression on its face.

Stoned Fox would make a great name for a Russian Vodka.

It might be because the Russians have had a lot of media there focusing on how a Russian group has suceeded in domesticating lines of foxes through breeding into pets and service animals.
First time this has been done with a wild land animal in many centuries..(Americans have managed to raise certain marine animals for service (Navy) or shows (sea lions).

And the domesticated foxes are very cute and intelligent.

It does look like the Carfax Fox. Poor dead stuffed object of ridicule. It is funny that they posed it next to dead stuffed Lenin. A more appropriate object of ridicule.
