A Russian truckdriver stops at the back of a long queue on the motorway. He sees a policeman walking down the line of stopped cars to briefly talk to the drivers.
As the policeman approaches the truck, the truckdriver rolls down his window and asks:
Driver: What’s going on?
Policeman: A terrorist is holding Putin hostage in a car. He’s demanding 10 mill rubles, or he’ll douse Putin in petrol and set him on fire. So we’re asking drivers for donations.
Driver: Oh, ok. How much do people donate on average.
Policeman: About a gallon.
