Šurik (шурик) is the diminutive or affective variant of the man’s proper name Shura, Sasha or Alexander. No one knows how or why, but in criminal jargon, it is slang for bottom homosexual and for dumb. We can only venture that perhaps it is related to one famous and homonymous fictional character, the protagonist of a series of films that began with “Operation Y and other adventures of Shurik” (1965), a shy, pretty stupid, and good boy with problems for relating to women.
