Resisting the surveillance state

Thanks to the always-reliable news site The Duffel Blog, we now know that the “Elf on a Shelf” is actually an intelligence gathering operation run by the NSA. Not everyone is taking this outrage lying down, however; some people have decided that it’s time to fight back:

  7. Oh my – I’ve always thought the elf a bit creepy myself and I PROMISE I am no fan of the NSA, but seeing him water-tortured seems so wrong somehow – so anti-Xmas – that I feel sorry for him and want to send out a rescue party. Am I the only one?

      • LOL – I don’t know about THAT! I seem to have been born with a severe knee-jerk reaction to the idea of pain in others.

        Even as a little kid I didn’t like many of the cartoons that my brothers found hysterical because I always felt SO sorry for the characters who got dropped off cliffs, blown up, etc. (even tho’ on some level I knew it wasn’t real, I just didn’t like to watch it).

        Most of these were kind of funny (especially #1, the clever Gulliver reference), but I found the water torture one truly chilling. Not sure what’s behind that reaction.

  10. The elf is the last lifeline parents have to keep children in line for a few weeks of the year. I see a rebellion afoot!
