Do you remember the Furby? They were the little, furry toy which shot to fame a few years ago. They spoke furbish and could pick up on worlds and sentences that they heard.
Apparently the CIA issued a memo to their employees, saying that they weren’t allowed to bring their Furbies with them to work, because they didn’t want the toys to go blabbing about things they overheard in the office.
This made me wonder…
The words “I’m a CIA agent” have been used by idiot teens everywhere to make them seem tough. They’re also a key ingredient in heaps of action movies. To many, this simple phrase is the verbal equivalent to adjusting your crotch.
Unless, of course, you do it like Michael Jackson.
These are the same people who need a special memo to keep them from bringing their stuffed animals with them to work.
I’m not so sure I’d want to give them a gun, really.
