Ukrainian astronomers adopt star and name it 'Putin is a d*ckhead'

Twinkle, twinkle little star.

NAMING A STAR after somebody may seem like a sweet, romantic gesture. Not in the case of these Ukrainian astronomers and pro-Ukraine activists who teamed up to adopt a star and name it “Putin-Huilo” after Russian president Vladimir Putin.

And what does Putin-Huilo translate to? Oh, just “Putin is a dickhead”.

“Putin-Huilo” is a popular Russian-Ukrainian song that has its origins as a football chant , but quickly gained traction during the recent unrest in Ukraine with many singing it at protests. The internet soon cottoned on to it and there are several renditions of the song on YouTube.

*points to sky*

“On a clear night, you can see ‘Putin Is A Dickhead’.”
