...and that evening, in Nova Zemlya, a rabbit poked his head out of his hole and thought "haven't seen any bear, human, wolf predators for some days now... life is pretty quiet those days. Good.
...
(see Tu-95 above, and the thing under a parachute)

"Hey, what's that thing upward ? a bird ?"

"Clean" is a bit misleading when the design yield was 100+ megatons with the U238 tamper/casing. Had they not substituted lead it would've generated a fair proportion of all the fallout from atmospheric testing to date in one go.
