HOUSTON — Naturalized U.S. citizen Alexander Fishenko appeared in court on Thursday to face charges as a Russian spy.
He is accused of illegally obtaining military-grade microelectronics for Russia. The case threatens to tarnish the reputations of Texas cowboys, soiling their wholesome image with Cold War-era spy tactics.
I only wish I was there to see alleged Russian spy Fishenko chatting up his fellow cowboys for details about the cutting-edge microelectronics in the state of Texas.
In response, Smurfs creator Peyo is considering a line of Russkies–cute, little, vodka-swilling spy creatures. Early prototypes for Russkies include:
- Crotchety New England Farmersky
- Boardwalk-loving Jersey Shore Dudesky
- Overtanned Florida Chicksky
- Patchouli-wearing, bicycle-riding Oregon Hippiesky (not to be confused with vintage-wearing, cocktail-swilling Hipstersky)
