Russian Sense of Humor at the Sochi Closing Ceremonies

The most delightful moment from the Olympic Closing  ceremonies at Sochi involved the Russians poking fun at their own Opening Ceremonies. In case you are in the U.S. and haven’t seen the show yet, I have refrained from posting the picture here because someone will call it a spoiler. However, if you are American and have decided to watch The Walking Dead tonight instead, check out the gif at Uproxx. Pictured here is ceremony director Konstantin Ernst, who should be proud.

Living in Ukraine, about all we were aware of here, as far as the Olympics went, were the 'Sochi fail' posts just before they started, the opening ceremony and the fact that several Ukrainian athletes withdrew part way through and another claimed her gold medal with a black armband. I honestly have no idea now about most of the events there. Going into the Olympics, I felt a bit worried about what would happen here if they didn't manage to resolve the crisis before the Olympics ended. It soon became obvious that we going to overshadow the Olympics here, period.
I'm glad that the Russians managed to find a little humor for the closing ceremonies. But many of his fellow countrymen likely needed to have the joke explained to them as they didn't get to see the opening ceremony unedited.
