Finds that laughter-through-tears sweet spot, often in the unlikeliest of places.
Of all the hundreds of links I've tweeted, none has been received with as much enthusiasm and as many re-tweets as this one, showing Kseniya Simonova, the 2009 winner of "Ukraine's Got Talent."
Some of the RT comments:
