BY NOW WE ALL KNOW THE AMERICANGOVERNMENT IS SPYING ON US.

THEY'RE IN OUR PHONES, OURE-MAILS, OUR TUMBLRS, THE

GRINDERS, THE TWITTERS, THEWHITAKERS -- THAT'S AN APP THAT

TELLS YOU WHERE FOREST WHITAKERIS AT ALL TIMES.

YOU'RE NOT SAFE ANYMOREANYWHERE, OR TO PARAPHRASE A

CERTAIN SAGE PHILOSOPHER...

THAT BRINGS US TO OUR NEWSEGMENT, "SOMEBODY IS WATCHING

ME."

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRYABOUT "BIG BROTHER" ANYMORE, BIG

EMPLOYER IS GETTING IN ONTHE GAME.

>> THE NEW SPYING SCANDAL THISMORNING, THOUGH, NOT SOME

GOVERNMENT AGENCY.

THE FURNITURE COMPANY STANDSACCUSED OF SPYING ON EMPLOYEES

AND CUSTOMERS IN FRANCE.

>> Jon: FRANCE!

NOT JUST IKEA, FRENCH IKEA, APLACE THAT COMBINES THE CHAOS

AND FRUSTRATION OF IKEA ANDCOMBINES IT WITH FRANCE.

[LAUGHTER]SO HERE'S THE DEAL: THERE'S NO

WAY IKEA HAS BEEN SPYING ONTHEIR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE IF THEY

DID, THEY WOULD KNOW THAT IKEAHAS A TERRIBLE FELINE

INFESTATION.

[LAUGHTER]I'M BEING TOLD THAT'S JUST AN AD

FOR THEIR NEW LINE OF CAT URINESCENTED FURNITURE.

SO WHAT ARE THESELINGONBERRY SLINGERS TRYING TO

FIND OUT?
