Spot-A-Yank 2000 or Where RFID Tech Will Take Us

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -

Hot on the heels of the US State Department's impending release of RFID enabled passports, Diebold Corporation proudly announces the availability of their newest product, the revolutionary Spot-A-Yank 2000 (patent pending).

Diebold Spot-A-Yank 2000Designed for the European and Asian markets where annoying American tourists are of particular concern, this wonder device will alert it's owner to the proximity of an American passport, allowing the user to quietly avoid unwelcome encounters. No longer will you have to look for those telltale signs--sneakers and loud Hawaiian shirts. No longer will you be caught in embarrassing situations by "stealth" tourists who sneak up and ask for directions while brutally mangling your native tongue. Indeed whole nations will now be able to shun Americans like lepers.

Said Guido Lewambier, French Minister of Culture
This is the device we have been waiting for. We are ordering 50,000 for our diplomats and for our national police.
Order your Spot-A-Yank 2000 today!

Douche-bag adapter sold seperately.
Wouldn't it be cheaper to just tattoo the starts and stripes on everyone's forehead?

Sure, but then American companies wouldn't make any money on the high-tech solution now would they?
Thank god I have my Czech Residency book which is good for 15 years. It is like American Express. I never leave home without it. I bring the passport only when it is absolutely necessary.

I'm thinking I should try to travel in the EU with just the Czech green card. You know, just for fun.
Then there's the super spot-a-yank 10,000, called spot-a-Texan.
Perhaps we could install a device in bombs we sell to other countries that will steer the bomb away from an area where the RFID passports indicate the presence of Americans. Like Lebanon.

Glenda...whoops, there mine goes again! :-)

PT, ah but you have the advantage of travelling in the EU zone where you don't need a passport.

Lew my friend I believe you've really got something there.
Kvatch, I can always count on your blog to depress me when my morning starts off on a good note! ;-)
Maybe we have an odor about us or something but you can pick out the Americans overseas so easily. You don't need a detector. We just find it hard to blend in.
