This is part of an ongoing series where I review some of the ads purchased by the Russians. In doing so I hope we can get a better understanding of what they were trying to do, and how to recognize it the next time we’re faced with propaganda.

If you want to follow along, the ads can all be downloaded here. All of today’s ads can be found in the 2016-q2/2016-04 folder.

There are so many serious subjects that could be tackled in that month’s folder of Russian ads. I will–just not this weekend. There are a lot of issues on our minds and in our discussions. So I thought I’d revisit Memopolis for a little refreshment fluff. Today is cat meme day!



P(1)0003892 does include some blue language…but at least the cat is cute:

THIS IS AN OPEN THREAD. Take care, and hug a cat today.
