Town Square

Come on people, the NSA just want to be friends...

Original post made by Sierra Rhodes, Pleasanton Valley, on Jun 11, 2013

In light of the recent revelations about the NSA's less-than-kosher behavior regarding surveillance, I feel it's important to find a silver lining in all this.

I'm LMAO until my sides are splitting. I've never read anything so funny in all my life. "Less-than-kosher" behavior. Oh, stop it! I can hardly breathe. Funniest thing I've ever read IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

"less than Kosher"...duh

What exactly do you mean? The reference is offensive.

In response to Cholo's comment: the reference is in no way meant to be offensive. Kosher is appropriate in the vernacular when it's referring to something that is not honest, good, appropriate, etc. It can be used in a non-religious and not ethnic specific manner. In this case, it's simply a humorous use of the word. If my use of the word offends, I apologize.

*Kosher meaning honest, good, appropriate, NOT kosher being the opposite
Edit for poor phrasing.

And if you should ever forget your pass word, you can always ask the NSA!

Shouldn't they use the technology to help people?

Hey Cholo,
The NSA called to say your driver's license photo is outdated and you should seriously consider cutting your comb over.
