These kids book titles re-imagine the beloved children’s stories with a dark twist. With topics like the NSA and online privacy being hot topics, it is only natural that people on the Internet are having fun with this issue.
Twitter user ‘Darth’ asked his followers to rename kids books on the theme of being surveilled, and the user shared the re-imagined book covers via photo uploads to Twitter. The books play up being watched and listened to by the NSA, twisting titles with new names like ‘Charlotte’s Webcam,’ and ‘The Listening Tree.’
While it is somewhat unsettling that these new titles have been imposed on children's books, as if to introduce the concept to kids at an early age, they are a humorous and harmless way to poke fun at the topic.
