...and Would You Like Sprinkles on that Star-Spangled Animal Fat?

"Muscovites have been puzzling over a series of vaguely Warhollian posters appearing in subway stations. The 'product' being presented is called Amerikanskoye Salo, which translates to 'American Lard' or 'American Fat.'

Judging from the poster, it has several culinary uses, including chocolate-covered lard and lard drizzled with borscht."

According to Read Russia (linked above), Russian business newspaper Kommersant claims this American Lard thing is a propaganda effort by political party A Just Russia, which wants to draw attention to the sick, unhealthy interior beneath the US's tasty veneer (edible or otherwise). Others claim it might be a viral effort to promote a book, and at least one civilian believes this really is just a new food product.

"Sigh. Propaganda here used to be so simple," the author laments. Yeah, we know the feeling.
