A friend asked me if I'd seen the brawl in the Ukrainian parliament on the news today. I hadn't.
"How does it compare with the monks in Jerusalem?" I asked.
"There's some pretty good action. Why don't you see if you can find it online?"
So I did.
Frankly, I was not impressed. One guy looks like he has some wrestling skills, but for the most part it's just slapping and shoving. These Ukrainians look old and out of shape compared to the Fists of Orthodoxy. Their technique is no good. I think that if you tell either group of monks that the other group is inside, and they'd clean the chamber out in short order. If we're talking about the red monks, that whole building would be Chicken Kiev before long. Then the only hope for Ukraine would be to beam a distress call to Chernobyl and summon the Toxic Avenger.
