Valentin's Day

General Consternation

The Russian army has launched a fitness regimen to help generals lose weight and squeeze into a new designer uniform by Valentin Yudashkin. A third of the army's elite officers are overweight and 25 per cent failed a fitness test. The army will now launch a fitness drive, building gyms, swimming pools and sports halls to get the officers back in shape.

FOOTNOTE: Fit happens.

Can't believe that 25% failed a fitness test - that's terrible, can you imagine if they had to do something!!

I think I need to be in the Russian army. Maybe I could get fit then.

Too much cake, pie and ice cream. They should be charged with dessertion. ;)

Love the footnote. Puts a new meaning to an army marching on it's stomach!

I love that they have to now build gyms and workout facilities. Um. I wonder why no one was in shape.
