Of Mice and Men, Albatross and Puffins and Mr Putin
The other day I drew a picture of a mechanical Albatross in the style of Mr Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci that could circumnavigate the entire world. At the time I suggested that it could be used by GCHQ here in
and NSA or the CIA in the
to spy on folk. However these organisations have said that although the plan
has merit the likes of President Putin is going to be rather suspicious if an
Albatross is peering at him through the windows of the Kremlin as he talks to
his generals. It appears Albatross do not sit on building in the middle of
large cities watching the men and women of world power, so they said to me . .
. . . .Rob you need to redesign that
bird and maybe make it blend in a bit more with the environment it would be
used in as a spy bird . . . . . . So I have thought long and hard about
this and thought to myself, what would the great man Mr Leonardo di ser Piero
da Vinci do. In a flash the answer was clear the perfect choice of bird, a bird
no one would give a second glance at in Moscow or Pyongyang where they could almost
sit on the shoulders of men as they discuss many secret things (that’s the men
not the birds) . . . . . . . . . . . Yes you have guessed it the humble Puffin. USA
Anyway I sent my design off to GCHQ and NSA and before you could say . . . . . the seagulls are holding the umbella in the park today . . . (a bit of spy talk) they have sent me a response saying . . . . . . .. . . ROB Z TOBOR you are an IDIOT. . .
Well there is no pleasing some folk, I understand how Mr Da Vinci felt now when he showed his drawing of his helicopter to the king.
