(PCM) Star registries have been around for some time allowing anyone with a small sum of money to name a star after any ordinary person. Now Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s name has joined the list with Путин – хуйло! or in poorly translated English, Putin Huilo which means “Putin is a d—head”.
This all slipped by the star registry, The Pale Blue Dot Project.
WHO CARES ABOUT PUTIN HUILO?
Westerners such as American’s have little background this issue, but the expression and meme has made International news in Eurasia for some time. Around the world, this slanderous expression has taken hold and has some interesting history.
The хуйло or huilo expression has long been associated with Vladimir Putin, a quick Google image search of Putin huilo meme will produce a trove of illustrated insults toward the Russian leader.
Maybe the word huilo’s various meanings which include “is a f–ker” and “is an a–hole” left room for error? Perhaps the more friendly “Putin is a dips–t” is what the registry mistook it for.
It’s clear the entity responsible for this star naming hasn’t spent money on Putin as a term of endearment.
Search Putin Huilo, or Putin Huylo, Putin Xujlo or the most correct Putin Khuylo and all will produce similar results.
The word хуйло (Cyrillic letters) is Russian and has been translated poorly from its Cyrillic letters into English letters as huilio, but should be properly spelled Khuylo. Due to serious translation issues from Cyrillic , the English spelling has been “huilo” as many reports have made.
THE EVOLUTION OF THE INSULT
Vladimir Putin is central to oppression and lies that border on Nazi like behavior according to many anti Putin activist which has roped in many ordinary citizens in and outside of Russia. In response to his constant and growing effect on countries surrounding Russia such as Ukraine, a onetime sports chant at Ukrainian soccer (football) games spread from sports to protest rallies.
The original chant started in 2010 and was directed at soccer official by fans of one specific team in protest to how the league was run. The last name was dropped and Putin’s was inserted after Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimea in early 2014. This begat the chant, Путин – хуйло, or “Putin is a d—head”.
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF хуйло (IS A…)?
Could the word huilo’s various meanings which include “is a f–ker” and “is an a–hole” left room for error? Perhaps the more friendly “Putin is a dips–t” is what the registry mistook it for. Xуйло́ has various translations: huilo, khuylo, huylo, or xujlo. The rootword хуй (hui) literal translation is “d–k” in Russian Ukrainian. The suffix “lo” translates as “d—head” or, the more emphatic, “f–ker” or “a–hole.”
HOW DID THE INSULT SLIP BY?
Travis Metcalfe, the founder of The Pale Blue Dot Project was interviewed by the Moscow Times stating, “Free speech is now written in the stars.” Normally one would expect that the slight would not be permitted but the payment and paperwork completed has long been established and while it only slipped by due to poor translation the name is permanent.
That decision is on the authority of Metcalfe. “We have no plans to censor any of these star adoptions.” He says that but would they really allow something truly vile? For ten bucks you can find out. The Pale Blue Dot Project is self proclaimed adopt a star organization that asks a minimum $10 donation toward space astronomers seeking life on other planets.
