We have heard numerous stories of Russia being ill-prepared to host the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, but spray painting grass for a better appearance?
This stuff couldn’t be more made up if Vladimir Putin himself showed up shirtles, in the dead of winter, to spray paint the dead brown grass to a shade of unnatural green.
The proof is both amusing and disturbing in timing, given that the Sochi Winter Olympics are just around the corner.

A quick lesson for Russian officials. Grass is typically brown in the winter, it is natural.
