The Spy Who Loved Us

I love that the article in the Buffalo News about Maxim Afinogenov becoming a U.S. citizen contained the following excerpt:

Afinogenov, who’s been in Buffalo since 1999, became an American after following the usual road to dual citizenship. He took history tests. He proved he could read and write. He passed the interview process.

“They need to know you’re not a spy,” Afinogenov said with a smile Monday.

I mean, that’s just awesome.  The last thing you’d ever expect a spy to do is to make a joke about being a spy in the local newspaper.  Max is so clever.

    Uh huh… sure Max… they never really disclosed how he got that crazy concussion injury a few years ago when he didn’t start the season… they said he got hurt over the summer or something like that… playing… uh huh… sure. I wonder if he winked when he said it.

    Too bad he turned over his greencard a few seconds after spinning in circles with it.

    Maybe the Russians sent Max in to figure out what the eff the “System” is.

    How did he pass the interview section? I can barely understand him 75% of the time!

    It’s all part of his master plan: distract us with his new found love for Americana and apple pie. While we’re all warm and fuzzy, he’ll make his move on Moose and Squirrel.

    Even his name is perfect as in: Ohhh, Max!

    “How do I know you’re not Control?”
    “If I were Control, you’d already be dead.”
    “If you were Control, you’d already be dead.”
    “Neither of us is dead, so I am obviously not from Control.”

    Wow, never knew Max got his citizenship. But after his mystery illness a few years back, he probably feels safer here.
