Government intelligence

Which spokesman for the IT development division of a state government asked a Tabloid spy what an underscore was?

"It's a line character that bridges words in things like e-mail addresses," said the spy.

"OK, so where do I find it on the keyboard?" asked the spokesman.

"Um . . . press the shift key, and hit that straight line a couple of buttons across from the backspace," said the spy.

The spokesman was confused. "Why make things so complicated?"

Somebody please tell us how this man made it into such a position.
