The Department of Social Scrutiny

Found a hysterical satire Web page thanks toDogwood Tales. The Department of Social Scrutiny Is sort of like America:The Book only with a British sensibility and if it is possible, even darker tone. Some of my favorite parts: "Either George Orwell or Winston Churchill probably said something really important about apathy, but we really can't be bothered to look it up right now." "The Department of Social Scrutiny has unveiled new proposals to counter the growing and unspeakably wrong practise of child identity fraud. Each year, hundreds of Britain's kids turn up to school to find their desk is taken by an adult pretending to be them. In many cases, the imposter has made convincing counterfeit copies of the child's only means of identification - a pencil case, packed lunch box or label sewn-in to the collar of their shirt, and teachers are unable to tell the difference. These attempts to fraudulently obtain services reserved for children, including meals cooked by Jamie Oliver and Metalwork lessons, must not be allowed to continue." "Work for the Government We need a team of outgoing psychopaths who are great at working under extreme pressure. No academic qualifications are necessary, but you will need to exhibit enough interpersonal and communication skills to win people’s trust shortly before you have them assassinated."
