An Apple a day...

Computer users smoke more weed than the general population. But Apple users smoke more than anybody. You show me a Mac user and I'll show you a guy with a dimebag and a novelty bong stashed under the bed. Here's proof: Remember back in '99 when Apple released the I-Mac? The TV ads swirled a bunch of colored monitors against a White background while playing Rolling Stones music. If you let your mind go while watching, you'd swear you were at Woodstock with Timothy Leary. Stanley Kubric watched that commercial and said, "it's too psychodelic, man. I'm gonna have a flashback." In case I haven't made my point clear enough: Mac users smoke the ganja. They love weed more than they hate Microsoft. They love weed more than their I-Pods and their one-button mouse put together. I mean, Mackies smoke serious quantities of weed. They make Snoop-Dogg look like Nancy Reagan. You catch my drift?

The tragedy, of course, is that we Windows users are the ones who need to toke just to stay calm for 5 minutes. I've never needed a bong hit so badly as when my "program is not responding."

Hey Ponti, babydoll here. Is it just me or is eBloggy screwing up? I haven't been able to visit any of their pages for the last couple of days.
And I get what you mean with the "program not responding" thing - talk about frustrating!!

Hi BabyDoll! Yeah, eBloggy's on the fritz for who knows how long. I'm glad you came to see me.

You should blog here. Mavrick already switched. Like I was telling her, this place is great. Great blogs here and lots of loyal readers.

Hope to see you.

That is so freaking true. I took a computer art class where we used Macs and like 99% of the dudes in that class were true tokers.

I don't partake in the ganja, but the way eBloggy is acting I'm ready to fucking drop acid.

My mother-in-law is a loyal Mac user. But she's WAY to uptight to smoke ANYTHING. Maybe I should let her in on your post. Then maybe she'll get the HELL off my ass.

That is a great post!! My mom insists on Macs and she was a hippie in the sixties....????
Now its all clear why she is the way she is.
You commented on "the wife" and I am "the husband" who offended every liberal in America with my post sticking up for Condi.
Great blog you have here... maybe me and the wife oughtta invest in a Mac after all.

Hey now, in defense of Mac users, we don't all smoke weed. You have a great point about the ads, what the heck was up with that. All the other comments really make you think too, maybe I'm just out of the loop and I need to go get a bag. I just use Apple cause I like knowing everything is going work continously and I don't have system failure. Great post though, back to my bon... work.

Not to get all serious on the LBB's blog, but I wish to point out that I am a big-time Mac user (own 3 at home, use them at work), and I smoke nothing. Just trying to avoid being stereotyped.

Latigo Flint, on the other hand...

..it's confirmed. I always suspected this. And "program not responding" or "website not responding" has been quite a problem the last few days.
I smoked quite a few marlboros over this. I know that doesn't count, but that's where I'm at right now.

I have always loved to throw sledgehammers... Apple had me at "SMASH!!!"

If Lizabeth isn't a user, she must be a lesbian...:)

Lizabeth said...

Ok, so some of our friends at the bar may think us girls are lesbians, but I guarantee I'm straight as an arrow. I don't actually smoke weed either, so I'm actually rather boring... unless I've had a few Jager Bombs.

Osbasso said...

In defense of Lizabeth, I don't think she's a lesbian, and from what I've recently read, she hardly needs the weed to have a good time! As for myself, a long-time Mac geek AND a professional musician, I found that beer was a much cheaper option, easier to get, and less illegal! But that was a personal choice--I find that your observations are pretty close!
