It's not the cut so much.. Funny but that's not something my mind even registers with. It's the adornments and those oversize clown medals are
something I've found particularly goofy and downright stupid looking about the Soviet and some other forces. Heck, the Command and Conquer series
even plays on the whole thing as I always thought of it, in the video clips that series uses with Hollywood talent.
The Russian Uniforms just clank like half a tin man when they move and it's absurd to see. The higher the rank/decoration level, the more absolutely
clownish they tend to look. One of the funniest scenes I remember seeing as a kid were Red Square Parades. You always had a line of clowns at the
stand. Sorry.. I can't help it..and now our guys seem to think it looks good.
The mental connection this makes from how I directly relate that uniform layout is one thing, but the sheer stupidity of it, in my eyes, is the other
half of the cookie. It's a tough one to crunch.
