So who gets to personally slap the sh*t out of every ACLU lawyer and journalist who falls for this?

that's nothing.  Just Obama's mind control satellite.

"Falls for this"? The image was tweeted from a verified Twitter account. It's probably a spy satellite. And the people who work there obviously have an amazing sense of humor, as well as being giant dorks, in a good way.

That, or this is a massive distraction and everyone's falling for it.

Distant third would be that the account was cracked.

One possibility: We're going to need to surveil the moon ostensibly to discourage the Chinese from getting all grabby up there.

Second possibility: As per the logo's imagery, the octopus is gazing beyond the Earth and over the continents of Europe, Africa, and Asia, which if true could mean several other things.

Third: A big fat middle finger to those who would challenge the powers.

Fourth: We are about to get all our lost socks back!

If we're living in the real world, this is an Onion article.

Since it doesn't seem to be an Onion article, I must conclude that we're living in a cheesy action movie.

*snerk*

In an exclusive interview, our own Ric Romero asked Mr. Subliminal about the secret payload.
Here's what he had to say on record:
"The secret (spy satellite) payload  is not a subject I can publicly discuss. The rocket's (intelligence collection) payload is a highly classified (spy satellite) project, and I am not allowed to discuss this (spy satellite) project with the press.

Where are the positive portrayals of octopi?  Like that Japanese one of the octopus keeping the fisherman's wife company while her husband's away at sea?

It's a mixture of hubris and lack of awareness of the public's perceptions. But it's perfectly believable...

I once sat in on a generic briefing of the NRO's mission at their newly constructed HQ, and as a soundtrack to the short introductory video they showed us, they actually used The Police's "Every Breath You Take." When it first started playing, several of us started chuckling, thinking it was some sort of ironic joke on the NRO's part, but the several public affairs officers in the room were dead serious. Then it just became spine-tinglingly creepy.

Here's the link that had that patch. It was linked near the end of the original article. It says that it kind of translates into "I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you." , but that the phrasing is a little off, and might be to give it more punch. But the phrasing here is unusual because it is written in the passive voice: a more accurate translation of the Latin would be "I could tell you, but then you would have to be destroyed by me."

It's the very last patch on the list, if you want to skip to the end, but they're all pretty cool...

I thought it might be along the lines of "I could tell you, but I'd have to kill you", but was secretly hoping for something more sinister, like "If I told you the truth, It (or I) would consume you", or something else, with an equally disturbing back story.

Though, admittedly, something along the lines of "The truth will set you free" would have been cool too.

No doubt Ms. Newmar was #1, with Eartha Kitt as a very close #2, but I would say that Ms. Merriwether
compares favorably to both of them.

In the interest of fair, scientific and dispassionate analysis, here's a pic of Ms. Kitt:
