If you're using an AOL account to spy on people, you're doing it wrong. That was the message from comedian Chris Hardwick last night on "@Midnight" when he tackled the news that CIA chief John Brennan's email account has reportedly been accessed by a teenage hacker.

"Following in the proud tradition of whistleblowers like Upton Sinclair and Daniel Ellsberg," Hardwick joked, "the young hacker took to Twitter to post: 'You know you like this dick @CIA.'"


"Despite being in charge of the world's most powerful intelligence agency," Hardwick continued. "Director Brennan was apparently using an AOL account because they sent him a CD-ROM in the mail with 70 free hours!"

Check out fellow comedians Esther Povitsky, Tony Hinchcliffe and Doug Benson as they imagine some of the subject lines that are waiting in the spy's inbox:
