It's a popular meme where the subjective and objective noun (I'm going out on a limb here) are swapped around. For example. In USA you drive cars. In Soviet Union cars drive YOU!

I think a reference on how they are a backwards union.

Not particularly racist but not worth of Potd.

The comment was the basis of a series of jokes by a ex Soviet comedian named Yakov Smirnoff a number of years ago.

Not racist but not worthy of pic of the day either.

Because everything on the internet is a meme.

'Everything on the internet is a meme' is now a meme.

In Soviet Union, bad jokes are funnier in the US.

Not really racist...but probably thought as discriminating...as people from soviet russia are people too and that poster makes fun of them just because they are soviet russians...that's probably how the guy was thinking.
