Artistic director of the “Modern” theater Yuri Grymov, specially for the NSS, prepared the top news, in his view, of the news of the outgoing week.
Top-1: Leaders of North Korea and South Korea held talks for the first time in 11 years
Yuri Grymov: The leaders of the DPRK and South Korea held talks for the first time in 11 years and signed a joint declaration and agreed to move towards full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
I think this is the main news. It is very important that they began to communicate and now friends forever. This is a big and serious sign. Now, if even China pretends to be friends with us, the question will arise: what about America? It in general will become unnecessary! All this is very serious. And I’m glad that Korea can reunite again.
Top 2: In the US, GQ magazine included the Bible in the list of “unnecessary books”
Yuri Grymov: In the US, GQ magazine included the Bible in the list of “unnecessary books”. In addition to Holy Scripture, journalists placed in this rating works such as “The Lord of the Rings” by John Tolkien, “The Old Man and the Sea” and “Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemingway, “The Catcher in the Rye” by Jerome Salinger.
That is, GQ, a magazine for metrosexuals, children who shave at each hair, conducted a study, and said that these books are not needed. Hurray, Mickey Mouse, give the chewing gum and GQ. In the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening and at night GQ. I laugh, though, in fact it’s a clinic, some kind of clinic.
Top 3: 80% of Russians are satisfied with their work
Yuri Grymov: The results of a study conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center showed that 80% of the working people in Russia are satisfied with their work.
If this statistics is correct, that’s fine. I, for one, am satisfied with my work, I like what I do. By the way, I invite you all to the theater “Modern”. We recently open the sale of tickets for my new performance on Maxim Gorky “At the bottom.” Believe me, it will be serious.
Top 4: 97% of Russians are confident that they have a sense of humor
Yuri Grymov: According to the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion, 97% of Russian residents are confident that they have a sense of humor. Only 2% of citizens believe that they do not know how to joke and perceive humor.
It seems to me, in fact, everything is exactly the opposite: 2% of Russians have a sense of humor. After all, only a person with a sense of humor can say “you know, guys, I do not understand what jokes are, and so on.”
