Gazprom to Europe: Don't Get Kinky

Gazprom held its annual meeting today, allowing CEO Alexei Miller the chance to warn Europe that its drive to use non-Gazprom gas was turning into a fetish.

"The push for Europe to diversify suppliers is understandable but it should not turn into a fetish," said Miller.

A fetish, really? You mean that energy security is now "a form of sexual desire in which gratification depends to an abnormal degree on some object or item of clothing or part of the body." How does that work?

Or maybe Miller meant to use fetish as "a charm superstitiously believed to embody magical powers." Does Nabucco really have magical powers?

In all fairness, however, Miller probably meant to use fetish in the sense of "excessive or irrational devotion to some activity."

That would make the most sense. We certinaly agree that Bulgarians spend far too much time "irrationally devoted" to staying warm every time Gazprom shuts off their gas supplies.
