What's got two thumbs and now thinks imprisoning Pussy Riot was an even greater idea?

The feminist protest group FEMEN is a big fan of the topless protest, and in the conservative atmosphere of Eastern Europe where they operate most often, it's usually a very shocking statement. They've made a lot of news protesting the incarceration of Russian punk group Pussy Riot, but when the group traveled to Germany to call Putin a dictator while he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel looked at some cars, they weren't counting on how much he loves a boobie riot. They may have raised awareness by making the news, but, unfortunately, they also made his day.
