The FUCK?

The CIA... is advertising... on television.

Yes. The Central Intelligence Agency. The Company.

On TV.

Excuse me while I go *boggle*.

The...wait, what? You mean, the actual CIA, not just a fictional one?

For real? But, doesn't that go against the whole point of the thing? *is massively confused*

Butting in, sorry, and hi! Really, they're just like any other government agency (though apparently much more desperate for people, as I've not heard of the FBI or the State Department running recruiting ads on TV) -- the agency's existence is publicly acknowledged, so it's not like they need to be really hush-hush about recruiting. It's really not much different from the Army running recruiting ads. Though... weird, and more indicative of a serious lack of people, if they're doing that.

(Both my parents and my grandfather were in the CIA at some point in their lives -- if they'd been doing field work I might not know, but mostly it's just paperwork and office stuff. Terribly boring for such an awesome-sounding job, heh.)

Well, they were advertising for scientists and engineers during MythBusters, so it was the right demographic, but still. The CIA.

I laughed hysterically every time I saw it.

(I say right demographic, but I really just watch 'cause of the Blowing Shit Up. That's always fun.)

Oh, wow, they must really be desperate.

Hmm......doesn't inspire a lot of confidence when there's a CIA spot on in between a commercial for an ambulance chaser and some drug that no one is quite sure of what it actually does.

That's just odd. I'm going to have to go ponder this. :P
