I think Hyperdox Herman was his travel agent.

I don't think that "George Green" is real.  It looks like propaganda from the east...

You dont need any money or knowledge of the Russian language to get a carnal distraction in Russia. You just need to walk on a street and see the females. The majority of them look like supermodels, according to Western standards, and wear miniskirts even when it snows.

Are you refering to looks or way of dressing?
Both.

I guess my church and my city just gets the bad-looking ones. I don't recall seeing any miniskirts or supermodels either in the services or among the Russian tourists.

I'll never forget the first time I went to the Joy of All who Sorrow in SF.  Lets just say that now I recommend all my single Greek friends to go to church there to find girlfriends
I got nothing.
I forgot the maps
March 27th and May 30th 2010 were my Ordination dates, please forgive everything before that

Father, you should know better than to be inflicting Greeks on others.

I could understand the anti-American aspect but that of all countries he chose Russia.  ???

My thoughts exactly.

I have a lot of Russian friends and they tend to fall into one of these two categories:
They despise Russia and wouldn't move back there if you paid them
OR
They love Russia and can't stop talking about how awesome it is...but still wouldn't move back there if you paid them.
