    Funny jokes can be tasteless. Quite a lot of what Pussy Riot does is intentionally tasteless and offensive. That's the point in a way and that's what makes what they do great. You seem to have missed the point. Pussy Riot are punk in the true spirit of the term, and tastelessness is one of punks main weapons.

    Looking at the thanks list in the original article, I infer that a goodly chunk (fnuur, that sounds rude too) of the contributors are of the gender that you think this is hateful off, as is the author and a number of the commenters. I may be wrong, this is the internet after all, and boys may be girls and vice versa.

    But in my opinion the best on the original list, "Fanny Free-for-all" is an unbelievably funny phrase (I appreciate that it may confuse some Americans not aware of the variation in meaning in the UK, but that only adds to the humour. I assume it was from a UK contributor).

    I see this list as a form of applause for Pussy Riots actions and bravery, and the only people who should be offended are the people who hate them and what they stand for and who are the real targets of this article.

    Enough seriousness, bring on the clowns, and remember - "God Save the Queen, she ain't no human being!"
