Whenever Russian President Vladimir Putin pulls off a macho stunt, there always seems to be a camera at the ready to capture the event.
After Russia's president posted his latest manly stunt, catching a huge pike, citizens were clear they weren't falling for the bait. The images of the 60-year-old president hauling in a pike, which the Kremlin said weighed 46 pounds, proved too much for some Russians to swallow. Within hours, online satirists were questioning whether the incident was staged and whether the pike was really as big as the Kremlin said.
