The Russian Reversal is a debating and argumentative tactic developed by the USSR during the twentieth century. A tool described as being able to end and subsequently win any discussion, its original intent was to stupefy capitalist dogs by inverting the sentence and introducing a new prepositional phrase, thus obfuscating the topic and allowing the debater to take control and bury his opponent. Its execution is as simple as it is lethal: the subject and direct object of the sentence in question are reversed, the sentence is preceded with "in Soviet Russia" and all sentences are shifted into the second person.

This is because Soviet Russia is a wondrous land of complete automation and bizarre reversal of ordinary American events and situations. Imagine your wonder when, upon calling a taxi, you discover that here in Soviet Russia, taxi calls YOU!!

A now kind of tired joke where you simply take something where a person performs a verb in order to alter a noun, and change it so that the noun performs the verb on the person.

In soviet russia, door opens you!

Can also be funny in some situations:

In soviet russia, computer turns on you! Wait, shit... that happens in america too!

A Russian reversal is when a man spreads his leg and puts one leg up on a higher level, woman reaches through his legs from behind and performs a tug job.

note: can also include salad tossing (hence called the Putin Cocktail)
