FBI Seal Illegal to Display Without Permission

In what has to be a local maximum of bureacratic stupidity, the FBI is demanding that Wikipedia remove the FBI seal from its site.
 The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation has threatened Wikipedia with legal action if the online encyclopedia doesn't remove the FBI's seal from its site.

Just when I started to think the FedGov could possibly not get any further into the borderlands of insanity they proved that you can't keep a stupid bureaucrat down.

On the advice of Patrick at Popehat I invoke this ancient spell of protection:

Ipso facto. E. pluribus unum. Res gestae divi Augusti. Agricola est bona. Shai Gaba Umbala Shoombala OOM!

And a "Klaatu, barada nikto", Just in case.

  2. Close.

    Agricola is latin for "farmer" and "bona" is the feminine for "good". So, if I remember my High School Latin clearly, the translation would be "The farmer is a good woman."
