I think we can just about call this a trend, now that our friends at LukOil have added to the growing collection of Russia's strange hydrocarbon folk music ("Let's Drink to the Russian Gas"). Did you know, for example:
Oil doesn’t have a woman’s demeanor
Oil has the demeanor of man...
Thanks LukOil. We've always felt that oil could use a anthropomorphic make-over, accessorized with the tasteful addition of sexism and misogyny.
There's probably an explanation for these odes to hydrocarbons, something about the Soviet habit of granting everyone a theme song (border guards, butchers, kolkhozniki) and the way it has infected Russia's post-Soviet culture.
But that doesn't soften the weird.
