The Central Intelligence Agency is releasing unintentional comedy via YouTube. Though taking the media-savvy lead of the Obama White House, a YouTube channel seems like an odd choice for the secretive set, but every organization likes to show off, I suppose. Here are some highlights:

Hanging out with a smiling android fish with elevator music in the background -- the novelty value could be high on this one. All hail James Pond. 


 Hey, do you want to know how to become a ''CIA canine''? These talking dogs are happy to clue you in!
