The world glimpsed a rare sight this week. Russian President Vladimir Putin burst into laughter during a routine meeting.
“They (Germany) send half their pork to export. Look at Germany’s numbers: five and a half million tonnes of pork produced a year, of that almost three million is exported to all countries, to China, to Indonesia, to Japan, Korea, and so on,” Russia’s Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachov.
Putin caught the mistake immediately.
“Indonesia is a Muslim country. They do not eat pork there,” he laughed.
“They will,” the Minister jokes.
“No, they will not,” Putin chortled.
It’s not the funniest joke that’s ever been told, but it’s pretty good for Putin standards.
