A very lone nose


Does something look funny about this picture? Here's a hint: This man is the president of Russia, and his nose isn't really this long.

This is a post card made by a magazine from Poland. The magazine doesn't like the Russian president. By making his nose long in the picture, they are calling him a liar.

There is a famous cartoon movie called Pinocchio. In it, a little boy's nose gets longer every time he tells a lie. So if you draw someone with a very long nose, it means you think they are a liar.

The magazine asked its readers to send the post card to the Russian president so he would get lots and lots of them.
