John Oliver Just Inadvertently Inspired DickPics4Freedom
When, on this Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver put NSA spying into terms most Americans might care about – that is, by describing how “dick pics” get passed around by federal employees – he inadvertently started a freedom movement.
Or something like that.
Better put, the Internet has responded to the fact that people’s “junk gets caught up in the government's database” by putting a lot more junk out there. Cue the rise of Reddit’s DickPics4Freedom page.
As the incredibly self-explanatory name implies, the site is basically a gallery of dick pics, each one standing, erect, in protest of unlawful government surveillance. Again, if you click on that link, you are going to see a lot of penises. Just so you know.
If you’re looking for less dick and more information about the NSA’s spying habits, there’s also CanTheySeeMyDick.com. Which gives info about “security and privacy” in matters of digitally shared genitalia, and other items. (But mostly genitalia.)
