MI6 was founded by a pimp sitting in a brothel. It was in turn founded after MI4 broke down in sex battles, which was in turn founded afer MI3 broke down in the Dildo war, which was founded after MI2 broke down in the penis battles, which was founded after MI1 broke down in the hundred years sex battle. MI6, as does all the MIs, stands for Missing Intellegence due to the incredible secrecy with which they conduct their affairs, no one is sure if they are hidden, missing, dead, carbon frozen, sucked through a wormhole or just disbanded because Bond movies told us too much about them. However, the one fact that is known is MI6 still drains three-hundred and twenty five million pounds a year from the british government, and another billion dollars from various hollywood producers.
edit SISter act
As the American nation grew more and more determined to take over the world towards the end of the 20th century, MI6 became under threat. Their tendency to know everything and in particular their leading agent James Bond began to get on the American's nerves. Therefore, in a cunning manouvre MI6 changed their name to SIS (Sexy Intelligence Service). This operation was dubbed "SISter act", and may or may not have been thought up by a sassy black singer who became a nun. Completely bemused by this disappearance, the American strike force sent to destroy MI6 got completely lost...and ultimately was reassigned to destroying the next biggest threat to the USA, the Loch Ness Monster.
edit Widely Known Facts
MI6 has such an effective gadget department every agent walks around with a transmitter, laser (which has caused many a Brit to make their teeth rot to hell), saw blade, pistol, grenade launcher, sniper rifle, folding scissors, laptop, deaktop, authentic 1942 supercomputer, pen, pencil, eraser, ruler, protractor, flashlight, bomb, tank, airplane, Aston Martin and liferaft. However, these figures are 55 years old and due to advances in micro technology it is suspected each agent walks around with a minor star system to aid him. This is a clear indicator that the British can at least use Japanese technology effectively.
edit Lesser Known Facts
Agents trained by MI6 usually leave the service by travelling in their micro solar system where they create massive empires and battle against one another. Others depart into the matrix, become television stars of MacGyver or become the kind of elderly grandmother that always has a piece of string. Few remain in MI6 because their license to kill was revoked by the United Nations. Most agents commented that this "took the fun out of everything" and quit.
edit Head Quarters
Of course, as a secret agency MI6 / SIS (see above) had to have a top secret HQ. However, having decided that would be exactly what the bad guys would expect, they opted for the opposite extreme. They built the most showy and pretentious building they could possibly think of, naming it "Vauxhall Cross". This name was apparently chosen because the building cost so much money that no company cars were supplied for agents that year - stealing business from Vauxhall and making them rather cross.
A long, long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away), Vauxhall Cross was attacked. Although it is not clear how the building was found in the centre of London having been marked on all tourist maps, a daring raider fired a missile from the Thames river. Unfortunately, the attacker had bought his missile from nearby toyshop Hamley's and so it did very little damage.
According to reports commissioned by the Blair Government, and sexed up by the Campbell Government, it is not planned to replace MI6 in the near future, however, it will be upgraded to MI6.1 by 2012 in time for the London Olympics, with a view to the introduction of MI7 by 1994.
