    Seeing as how both the US and the UK now have ways to provoke an official response to questions/requests that reach certain thresholds, I thought a thread might be in order to catalogue the more amusing/retarded ones.

    So here we are.

    Just that one that I've come across so far, I'm sure there will be more as time goes by.

    There's a good one from the White House about the Death Star.

    Oh no hang on, that's pretty much the only one that exists that's worth starting a thread about... ;)

    I can't be arsed to read the thread from the first page but I saw a brilliant one the other day. It was something to do with building a weapon in space or something. The response from the us government was hysterical. Anyone got a link?
