Data monster Google is scared of drones

The big chimichunga at Google, Eric Schmidt, has a fear. He’s afraid of drones. And what they might do.

See if you can tease any irony out of the following:

The influential head of Google, Eric Schmidt, has called for civilian drone technology to be regulated, warning about privacy and security concerns.

Regulated? Privacy? Security? (Begin sarcasm font) Wow, I’m sure glad Google is so concerned about me! (Close sarcasm font.)

What’s next, a public service announcement from Homeland Security telling us Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, and/or the U.S. government all have the same concerns?

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
