Thinkgeek's Security Camera Birdfeeder ($15.99) is a bit of gallows humor for the post-Snowden age. Feed animals in your yard while they perch unwittingly into an icon of the corporate-government surveillance apparatus, and try not to think about the CCTVs -- metaphorical and literal -- watching you as you watch them. Then ask yourself: "Who's the birdbrain around here?"
This waterproof resin birdhouse or bird feeder is shaped just like a closed-circuit TV camera. You (and your cat) can keep an eye on the "lens" to watch Bird TV. Aim the camera for your front door, and burglars who aren't paying too much attention may be dissuaded. That is, until it starts chirping. Then all bets are off.
