Furloughed Employee's Secret Message: Please Pay Us

The political circus that is the United States Government shutdown continues ... and since urgent exhortations by everyone don't seem to have an effect, employees of the National Weather Service in Anchorage, Alaska, decided to go the subtle subliminal route, as reported by the Washington Post (Thanks Tiffany!)

In the weather forecast released on October 4, 2013, the currently furloughed employees encoded a secret message: the first letter of the lines spelled out "Please pay us."

The technique is not new, of course. You all probably still remember when then California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger utilized this technique to send a message to the state legislature for vetoing his proposed legislation.
