What does the following phrase mean?
What is implied by "piracy pirates YOU" and what by "IN Soviet Russia"?
Update 1: My difficulty was because the term "pirate" and "piracy" are senseless to apply to Soviet Russia because there was no, strictly speaking, author rights. Nothing to pirate. Everything is already belonged by everybody.
@Ed Guiness, thanks for the link, I have never heard of them. At my youth other themes were popular like:
- American to Russian: 'In the USA, I can come to The White House and cry out: "Reagan is a moron"'
- Russian to American: 'I also can come to Red Square and cry out: "Reagan is moron"'
And those in your link are somewhat unknownat my time and even less now since currently everybody is is quite indifferent to politics.
Update 2: Subjectively, I gave credibility to George Orwell's 1948's 1984, rather more universally known and earlier than Yakoff Smirnoff.
