Innovation Humor.

Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on March 13, 2007

I’m always looking for humor in the innovation space, mostly because it is so rare. But over at Endless Innovation, we have a pretty good example. There’s a tech event in Germany and Russia is promoting itself as an “innovation nation.” And, of course it is.

But recently, it is exhibiting its innovation in strange ways.

Such as:

“Hopefully, this new “innovation nation” advertising slogan is based on more than innovative ways of poisoning ex-KGB officials, innovative ways of expropriating private sector assets, and innovative ways of playing hardball in political elections.”

Enough said.

We can also thank the Russians for forcing us to develop our CIA. We were very far behind Russia in intelligence gathering until then. Thanks for clandestine operations and puppet gov'ts Russia, you guys rock!
