Government Activist Wins Battle to Parody NSA, Homeland Security with T-Shirts

A government activist named Dan McCall has been selling T-shirts that make fun of the NSA and Homeland Security by using the official seals.

One shirt read, “U.S. Department of Homeland Stupidity.” Another: “The NSA: The only part of government that actually listens.”

After discovering the re-appropriated logos, the federal agencies tried to get McCall to stop and even accused him of committing a crime, the Washington Post reports.

But now both agencies have reached a settlement with McCall, conceding that he has a right to parody the government, even if he is using the official logos.
