When President Obama was asked on Sunday why America was contributing the overwhelming majority of military coalition resources against ISIS, he had this to say:

"When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don't call Beijing, they don't call Moscow. They call us. That's the deal. That's always the case. America leads. We are the indispensable nation. We have capacity no one else has. Our military is the best in the history of the world."

What followed, we can only presume, was the biggest mic drop in the history of ever.

The Kepler Astroseismic Science Consortium has a funding project called the Pale Blue Dot Project, which allows anyone to purchase naming rights to a star for the astronomically (see what I did there?) low price of $10.00. A group of Ukrainian astronomers did just that, and elected to name a star "Putin-Huilo," with "huilo" being Ukrainian slang for "d-ckhead," "a-hole," or "dipsh-t."

The astronomers got the name from Ukrainian Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsia's now-famous outburst in June, in which he yelled "Putin is a d*ckhead!" in front of an angry crowd outside the Russian embassy in Kiev. The diss may seem rather pedestrian to the rest of us, but it's rather unique coming from a government official. The Kremlin called for Deshchytsia's resignation after the outburst, to which Deshchytsia presumably replied "lol no."
