While we here in the United States like to think the world revolves around us (or, in some moronic cases, that the world is flat), it turns out we do not have the monopoly on defacing polarizing historical monuments.
The Moscow Times is reporting that pranksters in Bulgaria have been going around repainting Soviet era monuments to represent capitalists American super-heroes!
The monument in Sofia’s Lozenets district, was spray painted on the eve of the Bulgarian Socialist Party’s celebration of its 123rd anniversary to depict Superman, Santa Claus, Captain America, the Joker and others.
I honestly don’t know much about Bulgarian political history, but I am curious about any cause that is powerful enough to unite these diverse characters into a common cause. Maybe Putin canceled Christmas?
Whatever the cause, the Russian Embassy in Bulgaria is demanding that it be cleaned up, the dastardly vandals be punished and more security measures be put in place.
But lets also give credit where credit is due. That is some pretty nice graffiti work. From Cap’s little shield to Wolverine’s hands, that is some pretty good attention to detail.
While the Geeky Daddy Team does not have an international correspondent on staff (yet), we will do our best to keep you updated on this and other world events!
In the mean time, here is a video of cute baby pandas playing.
