Homeland Security Scaremongering Graphics Are Unintentionally Hilarious
Posted on Apr 4, 2006
We laughed so hard that tears welled up as we scanned the suggested meanings behind these new emergency info-graphics.
(Check out the source of the graphics at the U.S. Dept. of H.S.)
This is the same agency that brought us the roundly mocked color-coded terrorist threat advisory system.
The Box Set:
The US government has a new website, http://www.ready.gov/. It’s another attempt at scare mongering in the style of the old “duck and cover” advice after WWII.
The fun thing is that these pictures are so ambiguous they could mean anything! Here are a few interpretations.
A suggested meaning for the above Dept. of Homeland Security graphic: “If you spot terrorism, blow your anti-terrorism whistle. If you are Vin Diesel, yell really loud.”
