Someone Spotted A Steak At The Grocery Store That Looks Just Like Vladimir Putin, And We Can’t Stop Staring

Russian President Vladimir Putin is absolutely everywhere nowadays.

Seems like every time you turn around there’s a new story about Putin doing or saying something crazy, or a new eyebrow-raising allegation about our dear President being in league with the guy, and it’s frankly a bit overwhelming.

But this?

Well this is entirely too much. You can now add the grocery store to the list of places in which Putin is ubiquitous, because someone is foisting steaks in Putin’s image on unsuspecting consumers.

Make no mis-steak (see what I did there, thank you so much) this story is 100% USDA Prime True (or whatever the UK equivalent is).

That is clearly Vladimir Putin!

Here, look at a side-by-side:

Has Russia taken over the food supply now like they have social media‽

Are the stakes in our battles over Russian influence in our societies going even higher‽

Perhaps we should beef up security in our supermarkets as well.

Anyway, how did this Putin steak come to light?

A gent named Matt Gordon, a musician, found him—er, it—in a Croydon, South London Aldi.

As he told the UK’s The Sun:

”I was looking for something to eat for my tea and walked past the meat section when I was stopped in my tracks. I couldn’t believe it. I had to keep going back. The resemblance was amazing. My Aberdeen Angus sizzle steak looked just like Vladimir Putin. I walked past it a couple of times and each time it looked more and more like Putin.”

Gordon was so staken—sorry, taken—by the resemblance that he even risked a dead phone battery to bring us all this image.

A hero!

“I had hardly any battery on my phone but I had to take a picture for my friends and when I showed them they were in stitches.”

And the internet pretty much whole-heartedly agreed with Gordon’s friends.

And of course, there were PLENTY of jokes and puns.

Perhaps strangest of all, it turns out this isn’t the first time someone has found Putin’s face on… something that isn’t actually Vladimir Putin.

So how did it all end?

Well… likely something like this:

As Gordon put it to The Sun:

”I didn’t buy it in the end – I didn’t want to be responsible for sizzling Vladimir Putin who knows what might have happened to me. I might have ended up being well done myself.”

Ah, we see what you did there, Matt.  😉
