    Announcement. For Immediate Release - 6/6/2012

    Singer-Songwriter Adele has been scheduled to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her contribution to what CIA and NSA officials are calling, "the most effective enemy interrogation technique ever....ever!"

    The security agencies have completed almost a year of testing the new technique. While they are tight-lipped on the exact details, they are emphatic about the results.

    "On average, even the most hardened detainees fold in about 34 seconds. We don't even have to ask them a question. They simply jam their fingers in their ears and start blabbering secrets as loudly as they can.

    There have been several documented cases of bleeding from the ears, but it clears up within an hour or so after cessation of the program."

    There are a number of people who could earn this honor.

    Guy Lombardo comes to mind -- of course that would be a posthumous reward!

    For me, I think all they'd need to do is play back recordings of Justin Bieber fans. I couldn't take it.

    No entertainment act is. It may be sacrilege for some, but there are people out there that don't get Elvis or the Beatles.
