News that National Security Agency officers sometimes abuse domestic intelligence gathering practices to has led to a sweeping, satirical response by The People of The Internet. On Tumblr and Twitter, the and #NSALovePoems hashtags have sparked all sorts of creativity from users poking fun at the potential intrusion of the NSA into our personal lives.
“Roses are red, violets are blue, your pin number is 6852,” reads a popular “NSA love poem” spreading on the internet right now.
Far away in the tropical waters of the Coral Sea, two prawns were swimming around. One called Justin and the other called Christian. The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area.
Finally one day Justin said to Christian, “I’m fed up with being a prawn. I wish I was a shark, and then I wouldn’t have any worries about being eaten”.
Suddenly a large mysterious cod appeared and said “Your wish is granted”. Lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark. Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.
Time passed (as it does) and Justin found life as a shark boring and lonely. All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Justin began to realise that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight.
While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought perhaps the mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn.
He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and, lo and behold, he found himself turned back into a prawn. With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail.
Looking around the gathering at the reef he realised he couldn’t see his old pal.
“Where’s Christian?” he asked. “He’s at home, still distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy and became a shark” came the reply.
Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he set off to Christian’s abode. As he opened the coral gate, memories came flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted “It’s me, Justin, your old friend, come out and see me again”.
Christian replied “No way man, you’ll eat me. You’re now a shark, the enemy, and I’ll not be tricked into being your dinner!” Justin cried back “No, I’m not! That was the old me! I’ve changed!”
“I’ve found Cod. I’m a Prawn again Christian!”

It’s something you would probably least expect after calling 9-1-1 during an emergency — a lawsuit. If a deputy was hurt, would you be financially responsible?
A deputy is now suing a woman who called for help during an emergency. It all stems from a deputy-involved shooting that happened in Katy last year.
The deputy says he was injured when she made that call from her subdivision. In this lawsuit, he claims the homeowner failed to adequately warn 9-1-1 of the dangerous situation he was walking into.
“There’s information that I can’t even share with my lawyer, let alone with the American public.”
Dear USA. Kafka would like a word.
