At a Tuesday night state dinner at the Kremlin in honor of German President Christian Wulff, a guest found an earthworm crawling across his salad plate. He posted a photo of the beast on Twitter -- and has now found himself in hot water.
Dmitry Zelenin, the governor of the Tver Oblast region, took a photo of the worm as it crawled across his salad plate before posted it on his Twitter account later.
In Honor of the German President: Earthworm Makes Appearance at Kremlin State Dinner - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - InternationalUnfortunately for Zelenin, not everyone found the incident particularly amusing. The Kremlin's top foreign policy adviser, Sergei Prikhodko, took Zelenin to task on Wednesday, saying that a law should be introduced allowing for governors to be subject to "termination for imbecility." He added: "I won't even comment on irresponsibility and foolishness." Zelenin quickly removed the Twitter post and photo.
So, the Russian Top Policy Advisor believes a law should be introduced to sack a politician (governor) for being an Imbecile. If we had such a law here we would not have many politicians. :shock2:
