Vladimir Putin has hinted that he may see in day thirty of his ‘100DaysHappy’ challenge with a full-blown invasion of Ukraine. The 61-year-old Russian President has reportedly been ‘dedicated’ to completing the popular social network craze, which challenges participants to experience and document one ‘happy moment’ each day for one-hundred days.
‘He really has taken to it, and he’s already feeling much happier’, explained one source close to the leader today. ‘We didn’t even notice he was taking part until last month when he updated his Facebook status to: ‘Just blew off Geneva Convention to go fishing! #100DaysHappy #Day12'. It's quite inspiring - apparently he'll feel more 'wholesome' at the end of it. He deserves it'.
US secretary of state John Kerry has insisted that the White House has been keeping close tabs on Putin’s progress, and fear tensions between Russia and the west could escalate as the challenge reaches its mid-way point. ‘We expect Russian troops to be occupying at least 70% of Eastern Europe by day 65’, warned Kerry today. ‘We knew that negotiating on a civilised level was going to be tough when we read his day nine update: 'Just prank called America in my boxer shorts. #LMFAO #100DaysHappy #Day9'. 'This is no way to run a country', added Kerry.
'It just proves that, when Putin's happy, the rest of the world has to suffer', said frustrated Birmingham resident Phil Stamp today. 'At least there are some positive things to look at back in the UK. After the introduction of the bedroom tax, the raising of tuition fees and a load of new tax cuts for the rich, George Osborne and Nick Clegg's 100DaysHappy challenges simply must be coming to an end soon'.
