Now, now, don't be mean (back) to Yuri. Just laugh at him. Oscar the Grouch. He's often brought a smile to my face, like when I encountered him near the end of a long, miserable orienteering course (that I ultimately DNFed on), and I thought to myself, "It could be worse, I could be Yuri Bulka!".
I'll try to behave, and give thanks this week that I only know him from a distance. :-D
