In Soviet Russia, Uncyclopedia debunks YOU

Old primary tagline: Ninja State Machine
Old secondary tagline: Mavis Beacon Teaches My Hands to War
New primary tagline: Old Folk Algorithms
New secondary tagline: In Soviet Russia, Markov model hides you!

Andrew, one of my students, says the "in Soviet Russia, car drives you" is from Yakov Smirnoff. Is this so? I thought there was actually something from Doctor Zhivago to this effect.

tmehlinger showed me the Uncyclopedia, a Wikipedia spoof, which has an article about "Russian reversal", but... well, it's the Uncyclopedia. :-)

Edit, 23:00 CST Tue 25 Oct 2005 - Apparently the original reversal was by Yakov Smirnoff, from "In America, you can always find a party!" to "In Soviet Russia, the (Communist) Party always finds you!"

In your country, you watch movie "The Rock."

In my country, we break rock in gulag.

In Soviet Russia...
LOL! Yay MST3K!

In America, everyone has America On-Line.
In my country, everyone gets in line for America!

In your country, emo kids lie in the dark and cry.
In my country, the darkness lies on crying emo kids!
(Hrm, all too plausible.)

In your country, people get "instant messages".
In Soviet Russia, messages instantly get YOU!

oh, that Uncyclopedia will lead to hours of fun! I love all the totally bogus Oscar Wilde quotes! Then I clicked thru to the Oscar Wilde page and that's just hilarious!
