Just try not to laugh out loud. Really.

(Newser) – It's hard to say what makes this footage of one Russian tycoon sucker-punching another on a TV show extra hilarious: Maybe it's the glowing purple orb that sits in the middle of the discussion about the economic crisis. Maybe it's because property developer Sergei Polonsky announces he sometimes feels like "bashing" newspaper owner Alexander Lebedev "in the face" ... only to have Lebedev bash him in the face. Or maybe it's because, as the AP reports, Polonsky suffered the indignity of ripped jeans. (Lebedev later took to his blog and wrote, "He was hit in the face and he's showing off a hole in the backside of his trousers. Strange.")
