Sochi restaurants must be as anti-humor as they are anti-gay after it was revealed that they’re serving menu items ‘in [ahem] the ass’. We’re already aware of their utter lack of knowledge on how to provide hotel accommodations, and convincing people from normal countries that internet routers must dangle from the ceiling like a wi-fi wind chime. In fact, things have been so disastrous that it makes you wonder if a shirtless Putin will deliver breakfast to athletes in their rooms.

These Sochi Restaurant menu items got lost in translation.
Dana Spencer, a sports reporter for Canadian Press, noticed something both odd and hilarious on her first night out at one of the Sochi restaurants: the menus were in Russian with rough English translations. Specifically, the dessert menu listed cake as “in the ass”? This, of course, gives whole new meaning to Marie Antoinette’s famous “let them cake” statement. Further, let them eat cake…’in the ass.’
Surprisingly only 420 calories.
We’ve all heard the saying, “a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips,” but cakes in the ass seems kind of extreme.
Ice Cream ‘in the ass’ is actually not as filling as cake ‘in the ass’
Eugene Gourevitch, a business man and a former financial adviser to a corrupt former president of Kyrgyzstan, had a similar experience in a Sochi restaurant.
Sochi restaurants want you to wash down all that cake ‘in the ass’ with some lemonade ‘in the ass’
And, of course Sochi restaurants pulled out all the stops for Patrick Sanduski, the chief public affairs officer for the US Olympic Committee (USOC, as in “you suck, Sochi”). Maybe he wasn’t drinking that night, because they offered him “lemonade in the ass.”
