A demotivational picture joke about my friend:

You have failed your session?
Bag, railway station, *Hat'ki (name of a village she lives in)!

Another one joke: our common friend who is an ethnographer has a theory that this village's name should be pronounced 'Hat'ki' while all the villagers say it 'Haćki'.

That is one well built priest!  He looks like an athlete himself!
Supposedly he has a boxing and judo background.  I've seen videos of him training Sambo with Fedor.
