Barack Obama has issued a presidential order to the Central Intelligence Agency to begin hiring all graduates of the Jethro Bodine Skool of Double-Naught Spying. Obama said that he feels these highly trained agents will be of immediate assistance to our clandestine efforts around the world in our war against terrorism.
Deputy Director Milton Nestle of the CIA issued the following statement: "I think that the President is either trying to sabotage our government and our country or he has been watching too many old reruns on television."
"Jethro Bodine was the nephew on The Beverly Hillbillies who wanted to be a Hollywood producer, a brain surgeon, or a double naught spy (as he called it). His most effective disquise was a raincoat and a pair of Groucho Marx glasses."
"We cannot send agents into the field who have received classes on such things as How to Avoid Ellie May's Critters, How to Sneak Possum From Granny, or How to Get Mr. Drysdale To Let You Date the Secretarial Pool. They just would not be prepared."
"Our enemies have much better trained agents than these. What is this President trying to do, compromise our government?"
Trying? I think he's been doing exactly that.
