News, but not the serious kind
iPad? Damn, was that THIS weekend?
Blog Guy, you’ve been strangely silent on the release of the iPad. It’s all any of the other bloggers are writing about, and especially with your technical following…
Yeah, sorry, I just heard about it. I wish somebody had told me it was being released this weekend. But when I saw it in the newspaper yesterday, my team and I bought one and put it through its paces.
Not to criticize, Blog Guy, but what else is there to say about the iPad at this point?
Plenty. My cat, Jackson, found the navigation confusing.
My assistant, Lamar, complained that he “couldn’t find the way to flip up the top.” So he tested it for durability, using a sledgehammer and an anvil to take it apart into 246 pieces.
Hold on, Blog Guy. You’re a complete idiot. First, the iPad doesn’t have a mouse, so I don’t know what the hell your cat is doing there. And secondly, Lamar is a Luddite imbecile. There’s nothing to flip up.
So once again, you have wasted our time and shed no new light on a topic of great interest to many of your readers. What do you have to say?
Um, do you know anybody who can help me put this thing back together so I can return it to the Apple store for a refund? It’s almost time for Jackson’s dinner, and I’m writing this blog in longhand.
