Fun with Secret Questions

If you’re working in security, this will make you laugh. Hard.

“Ally Bank wants its customers to invent their own personal secret questions and answers; the idea is that an operator will read the question over the phone and listen for an answer. Ignoring for the moment the problem of the operator now knowing the question/answer pair, what are some good pairs? Some suggestions:

Q: What the hell is your fucking problem, sir?
A: This is completely inappropriate and I’d like to speak to your supervisor.”

You MUST READ the comments to the original post – there’s some HILARIOUS stuff in there, like

Q: Sir, before I begin, I would like to remind you that we do not serve gays, latinos, women, or people over the age of 50. Are you any of those things, sir?
A: Yes and I’ll be seeing your ass in court.


Calif. group proposes George W. Bush Sewage Plant

“We think that it’s important to remember our leaders in the right historical context,” said McConnell, a member of the group that was formed after friends came up with the renaming idea.

“In President Bush’s case, we think that we will be cleaning up a substantial mess for the next 10 or 20 years,” he said. “The sewage treatment facility’s job is to clean up a mess, so we think it’s a fitting tribute.”

The “mess,” as supporters of the plan see it, includes the aftermath of the Iraq war and what they see as a neglect of domestic economic issues.

“What we’re really doing is symbolizing the fact that as he leaves office, we’ll begin the process of basically repairing damage and rebuilding our country’s reputation,” he said.

And the best bit:

But others think the plan reeks.
