My Yan-nhaŋu archive DVDs have been impounded by customs. I need to give them a detailed description of the contents, track lengths, who the video is of, who recorded it, and various other pieces of information. After all, they just look like videos of people weaving, but they may actually be bomb-making videos. That table may look like a paradigm of pronouns in different cases, but they’re actually secret terrorist training mnemonics. And that front cover I showed you could be a map of dirty munitions sites. And when they find out that the audio files on the videos are in a language that no one at the FBI can speak*, the fun will really begin.
*despite their request for agents who have competence in Broome Pearling Lugger Pidgin.
