The Second Side

I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

"You're Being Watched."

Now here's one even Orwell didn't think of. A pest control company in Florida is being trained by police to spy on their customers and report anything suspicious to police. A worker for the company says that "Our point is not to invade people's houses or make them feel like their privacy is being invaded. It's just to try to have an extra set of eyes and ears out there." Also, if you see one of the company's yellow VW bugs, "you're being watched."
This brings to mind a quote from 1984, the most important book ever written:
A few agents of the Thought Police moved always among them, spreading false rumours and marking down and eliminating the few individuals who were judged capable of becoming dangerous.
When the shower cam is introduced to keep us safe from bathroom intruders, I suppose I could volunteer for camera duty . . .

Good Lord! That VW with all the "buggy" contraptions on it is creepy.

And naughty Jimmy, volunteering for shower duty.

Monkey will volunteer for produce duty. So, if you see a monkey hiding amongst the canteloupes... you're being watched.

Hey, I just want us to be safe from the shower terrorists.
Monkey, just make sure to stick some shrubbery in the canteloupes so you'll be camoflauged.
