Why am I the only person who notices the comic potential for the name of a certain troubled Eastern Ukrainian region? Today's example:
“I am Donbass” became a popular hashtag on Twitter in Russia, and various politicians weighed in on this theme.
Come on, a bunch of Russians posting "I am Donbass" on Twitter is comic gold, gold I tell you!!!

Alas, it hasn't been quite as fun since the Donbass People's Militia changed its name to the United Armed Forces of Novorossiya.
