Some help just in case you are being monitored

Who knows.......you may have already been eavesdropped on, or it may still happen to you.    Andy Borowitz, writing in The New Yorker, provides some helpful hints in the event that whoever does drop in to monitor you conversation.

"In the event that the U.S. government is monitoring your conversations, here are some useful phrases to insert into your phone calls, texts, or e-mails:

I think the N.S.A. is awesome.

I’m pretty sure my neighbor is cheating on his taxes."

"Wake Up"

The message is loud and clear....and as you watch this, remember that it was on Israeli TV - not some anti-semitic or anti-Israel program somewhere in the world.
