Department of Homeland Security

The following is taken from the top of the HTML of the US Department of Homeland Security’s homepage.

Those who aren’t web developers might not be worried. Let me worry you.

“lang” is short for language and “de” is the abbreviation for fucking German, excuse my French. There is not one implication of that being there that’s good for anyone.

Dear Secretary Chertoff:

Welcome to your new job. We understand that Evil was one of the major qualifications and expectations — we are certain you shall not disappoint — however! incompetent employees and secret deals to hand the country over to the Jerries is not part of the mission statement. I hope the rest of your shop is slightly more patriotic and on the ball than your web team. You really should consider taking them out back to marry the ropemaker’s daughter. Though I suppose the phrase “close enough for government work” had to come from somewhere.

I am vigorously exercising one of the only Constitutionally guaranteed rights you’ll permit me by praying for your early demise.

Redisgruntled, to the max,

Vivian Five VI

PS: I know it’s a month early but let me be the first to wish you a Happy Secretary’s Day!
