Operation Dit Dah (Your Tax Dollars at Really Revolting Work Edition)

|

As the big boys on the Hill debate National Security Agency[* corrected] surveillance, via Washingtonian magazine comes a reminder of the incredibly retarded kids' page at the National Security Administration, where tykes of all ages can chill with "Decipher Dog," "Crypto Cat," and other ersatz cartoon characters (yes, they do exist!) designed to make us love the feds from the cradle to the grave.

Go here to engage in "Operation Dit Dah" and other police-state hijinks.

  6. I did my taxes yesterday. Even with zero deductions, they still want another $100. They suck!

  7. I wonder what would happen if someone told the muslims that one of those NSA cartoons looked like Mohammad?
