Cultural exchange of doubtful jokes. English-language Twitter laughs at a mouse who to "krodetsya", and asks how it to Elon Musk of the Photo: Joe Skipper/Reuters America has discovered Russia — more precisely, the Russian memes. In the beginning there was a tweet — about Elon Musk. The little-known user of Courtney (@andromedamn) has written to subscribers: "How it has become clear, in Russia there is such meme where they drag Elon Musk under pictures of superstupid doubtful layfkhakersky inventions with an addition "As to you it, Elon Musk?" It seems that Russians best of all understand memes". Three photos are attached to a tweet: the energy saving bulb at an entrance fastened to a pipe by the bicycle lock that haven't stolen, the washing machine on which the gas stove, and the man with a rim from a toilet bowl on a neck using a cover as support hands-free for beer is installed. Respectively: "How to you such invention, Elon Musk?" The tweet became frighteningly popular. For several days it was retweeted by nearly 25 thousand times (for comparison, the average tweet of Trump gains 10 thousand retweets), and under the publication all new and new Russian memes about Musk have begun to appear. I will just list the most valuable inventions — it is possible to add the address to Musk to everyone mentally: Russia has created the smallest bast shoes; holes on roads of Kaluga have patched a mowed grass; the Omsk prisoners have stuck together from snow of "Topol-M" full-scale; a toilet bowl instead of a basketball ring, and so on. But on Elon Musk there are other fish in the sea — other Russian memes have following departed: modern absurdist humour, old classics of RuNet — for every taste. Most of all Americans the meme "has interested a mouse to (krodetsya)". It is impossible to explain sense of a joke. Why it is ridiculous, nobody knows. At the same time to tell that it is a little-known peripheral joke, it is impossible: recently imitation "the train to nisetsya" has appeared on the official page of the Moscow transport in VKontakte. And further — anything. "Vzhukh — and you is deducted" with a cat wizard; "What unites you and these pasta? Emptiness inside"; thoughtful Vladimir Putin with a stone in a hand and the signature "And whether taxes can pay stones?"; photos of drunks in the poses reminding dogs robots of Boston Dynamics; rifmochka it seems "Look of a cat, grace of potato", and other. The American Twitter is excited. Users bilinguals translate jokes and offer English-language adaptations of the Russian memes. Generally, mixture of cultures. Has reached that about Elon Musk large editions, and not only youth like Motherboard began to write about memes, but also the international Metro — newspapers call the Russian jokes "hilarious". In principle, the ability to do ridiculous memes can be brought safely in an asset of "soft power" of Russia. One grieves: if the trend on landings for activity on the Internet proceeds, most of fighters of the cultural front — authors of world-famous Russian memes! — it can appear in places of confinement.
