Top Secret Bumper Stickers, Ad Campaigns

A couple of sharp-eyed travelers recently encountered this less-than-clandestine advertisement for ClearenceJobs.com, a job-search site for holders of U.S. security clearances: "Real Analysts do it in a SCIF." The slogan refers to a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility ("SCIF"), a facility in which classified materials may be handled securely.

Inspired by the placard, here's a list of more SCIFfy slogans, inspired by classic bumper stickers, movie and music quotes, and advertising campaigns:
  • "What goes on in the SCIF, stays in the SCIF."
  • "If this SCIF is a rockin', don't come a-knockin'"?
  • "Keep on SCIFfin'!"
  • "My other tent is a SCIF."
  • "Got SCIF?"
  • "Keep SCIF and carry on."
  • "We do more in the SCIF before 9 a.m. than most people do all day."
  • "The SCIF: We could tell you about it, but then we'd have to kill you."
  • "Party rock! (Everyday I'm SCIFfulin')"
  • "The SCIF? You can't handle the SCIF!"
  • "First rule of SCIF: Don't talk about SCIF. Second rule of SCIF: Don't talk about SCIF!"
  • "Charlie don't SCIF!"
  • "SCIF you!"
And, of course, our current favorite:
  • "SCIF happens."


  1. But SCIF is so secret we will never know which slogan wins.

  2. Love it. I am glad my travels yielded a topic for your excellent blog. I will keep my eyes open for more fodder in the future. Cheers!
