  • USA fearing for nano spy bugs embedded in Canadian coins!

    Those Yankee doodles south of the border sure are funny!

    WASHINGTON An odd-looking Canadian coin with a bright red flower was the culprit behind the U.S. Defence Department's false espionage warning earlier this year, the Associated Press has learned.

    The odd-looking but harmless "poppy coin" was so unfamiliar to suspicious U.S. Army contractors traveling in Canada that they filed confidential espionage accounts about them. The worried contractors described the coins as "anomalous" and "filled with something man-made that looked like nano-technology," according to once-classified U.S. government reports and e-mails obtained by the AP.

    Yeah, that's pretty funny and sad at the same time. Shows how stupid and paranoid some of the people running the show down here really are. Not really surprising though.

      Aw, the hell with it...

      I say we march to Ottawa with a check for $500 million and just buy the whole damn country! That's obviously the best way to deal with international threats!

          Astonishing too that they can tell that it looks like nano technology, considering that nano tech is supposed to be too small to see with the eye.

          At least we now know what to look for when trying to find US nano-tech bugging devices. They look just like tiny red flowers. Come to think of it... ooh dear, I think my house as been bugged. Excuse me while I bin the flowers.

              You better show up with a "cheque" not a "check" or you will just be standing outside the banque wondering what to do. hahahaha

              The coin was created for our Vets for crying out load and Tim's (Tim Horton's Coffee and Donuts for the uneducated American masses) distributed them. Hell can we get more Canadian?

                  Quite clearly the red "flower" is an embedded spy camera intended to infiltrate and record valuable state information for the upcoming US vs. Canada megawar.

                  It is programmed to autodestruct if tampered with or used at any McDonalds location worldwide.
