Sometimes, even when the Bluenosed, extremely misguided idiots are at their most obnoxious, the goofiest of humor can still snake through-and forgive this being slightly out of chronological order here, I think it makes it funnier to consider

Policing Porn Is Not Part of Job Description

Two uniformed men strolled into the main room of the Little Falls library in Bethesda one day last week and demanded the attention of all patrons using the computers. Then they made their announcement: The viewing of Internet pornography was forbidden.

The men looked stern and wore baseball caps emblazoned with the words "Homeland Security." The bizarre scene unfolded Feb. 9, leaving some residents confused and forcing county officials to explain how employees assigned to protect county buildings against terrorists came to see it as their job to police the viewing of pornography.

Yep, nothing say s "Threat To Homeland Security" like "Scorching Hot Babes" or '"

And it's obvious that the County officials were probably none too pleased that bluenoses quaking at the thought of unclothed genitalia invading the public library's started bugging the library's patrons

Later that afternoon, Montgomery County's chief administrative officer, Bruce Romer, issued a statement calling the incident "unfortunate" and "regrettable" -- two words that bureaucrats often deploy when things have gone awry. He said the officers had been reassigned to other duties.

No Doubt

Now, as I said, you can find humor in almost any situation if you look hard enough, and this one paragraph was just so satisfying in a "D'OH!!!" style of karmic payback for those Homeland Security Puritans bothering of the library's patrons

After the two men made their announcement, one of them challenged an Internet user's choice of viewing material and asked him to step outside, according to a witness. A librarian intervened, and the two men went into the library's work area to discuss the matter. A police officer arrived. In the end, no one had to step outside except the uniformed men.

Ahh, the joy of busybodies who get their mission so wrong then pay for their little power grab at the expense of those not bothering anyone else

A BIG "Attaboy" to the Bethesda Police Officer who had to put up with this dunderheaded duo, he truly earned his paycheck for "Protecting And Serving"
