Oh noes!!!

It appears that I've annoyed a fan of Apple products. Oh well, that's how things go, I guess, although I'm a tad baffled as to why the author over there seems to think there's something faulty with my "sense of satire". Did I miss some satire somewhere? Is there a dollop of satire on my shoe?

Anyway, back to my nice PC.

UPDATE: Apparently that site is devoted to satirizing the Apple cult, I guess. Based on just the post that linked me -- which is all I read over there -- the satire is pretty hard to detect, but there you go.

And again, back to my nice PC.

What!?!?! You're a {gasp} white boy?!?!?!

ROFFLE!!!! Dude, did your considerable hair blow as the point flew over your head? That whole blog is satire - and if you take half of us "creepy" folks seriously.... well, you are missing some sense of satire.

And for Scotty - context, context. I was laughing two or so posts earlier about the funny blog http://www.stuffthatwhitepeoplelike.com and noted that "Apple products" was number 40 on the list. Then I came across this blog with a picture of an obviously white boy, and found it very funny to say "here's a white boy who doesn't like Apple products."

Sheesh, this is like explaining a joke to a roomful of blondes.

But then again... you are Windows users ;)

Thanks for the link. I dig the shirt in the picture.

Well, sorry to ruin your good time or anything, but all I saw in my referrals was the link from that post of yours, so I didn't spend a lot of time digging through the rest of your blog for other, related posts. (Actually, I didn't spend ANY time doing that.) Just on the basis of that single post of yours, I figured you were being serious in taking me to task for not thinking iBricking is a good thing.

Anyway, go ahead and have a good time, I guess. (I'm shrugging now.)

it was very tongue in cheek, you were just the first white boy I found that didn't like Apple - but there is a serious side in that, really companies do have the right to enforce their agreements - but we also have the right to complain about it

don't let us Apple cultists freak you out - we really aren't creepy. Most of the time. Before midnight at least.

I didn't catch the satire here either. Since I come here nearly every day, there was over a week between the "stuff white people dig" post and this one. It was way off the radar by then.

This whole conversation hurts my head- the convergeance of two pieces of satire (Apple, the white guy thing) - that somehow made you... no, just too weird.
