Rudolph Bangatov was the very first Russian spy voted into the KGB Hall of Fame.

MOSCOW - The Vodkavich News Agency has just learned that the Russian government has had to furlough some federal workers.

The national news agency has said that the KGB has laid off 80 spies due to the down spiraling Russian economic situation.

The KGB stated that the spies will all receive unemployment benefits, food stamps, and they will be allowed to keep their Glock 9's, their pen knives, and their government issued AK-47's.

Originally the plans were to lay off 120 spies, but President Vladimir Putin decided to use 40 of the spies to work security at the XXII Sochi Winter Olympics.

SIDENOTE: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has said that by laying off the 80 KGB spies it will make it easier for his North Korean operatives to enter Russia and gather up all kinds of information.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
