When all of the sudden in the midst of a paticularly moving segment, he hears a loud, uproarious sneeze coming from amongst the crowd. Stalin stops speaking, glares at the soldiers, becomes very visibly annoyed, and says “Who sneezed?…”
All of the soldiers don’t say anything, some of them start to sweat and others nervously glance around. After a brief moment Stalin motions towards a few soldiers with him on the stage. “Execute the first row…” he commands, and the soldiers on stage begin opening fire at the first row of troops on the ground.
“I’ll ask again, who sneezed?” says Stalin. Another pause, and no one speaks up. Finally Stalin says “Execute the…” but before he can finish, a soldier about 4 rows back raises his hand and says “It was me General Secretary Stalin! I’m the one who sneezed.”
Stalin then stares cold and hard at the soldier who spoke up for an uncomfortable amount of time, before he leans towards his microphone and says “Bless you.”
