iDontcare.

But the viral marketing continues, and with each iteration, it makes me loathe the Apple corporation and all who fall under its spell with ever more gut and spleen. And if buy, buy something else, just because it's not. Which is in and of itself being corsetted by the admonkeys, I know, so I lose just as profoundly and laughably as the dipshit fashion-dazed fuckheads who buy Apple's overpriced crap, iteration after iteration. Such is.

Sorry, what were we talking about?

stavrosthewonderchicken: "But the viral marketing continues..."

WTF? All third-party product accessories fall under "viral marketing" now? Or is it the simple existance of a product that one person thinks is funny or notable enough to point out that makes it viral marketing? If I emailed my friend about how "the new Altima is awesome", does that mean Nissan is guilty of viral marketing?

I think we were warming up the "Pepsi Blue" and "Best of the Web" snarks for deployment, but then got momentarily derailed by the iChip on your shoulder.

It means Nissan is a carrier and you, Plutor, are infected. Wear a condom.

Parody.

Albeit, this parody might make someone money, but this is parody all the same.

I thought the minimum wage was higher than that.

It forms a cross, not a crucifix.

iThink this is damn funny, and I iMagine these people will make iMint off of this. Both from those who know it's a joke, and those who think it's serious.

"The fastest growing religion in the world" looks like it refers to iPod ownership, not Xtianity. In case you missed that bit.

For Christ's sake maybe.

Yes. And you'd be sphincteriffically lame, too! How excellent!

A Nail Cross Necklace is much more elegant and tasteful.

Might do well if cross-marketed to Goths.

I never really understand why people want to wear their electronics, and this I understand even less. Garish and stupid.

That might be the funniest thing that I've seen in weeks.
That's not for real, is it?

If Jesus had lived in Texas 10 years ago it George Bush would have gleefully flicked the switch himself.

The people who came up with this sure have faith in marketing, bless them!

Too bad it's not clear what decade it wants to belong to - if it had been around in the 80's it should have been black, now, it needs to be gold and with diamonds in it. White just doesn't do it.

As I type these words of spiritual insight on my ordained G5, I just wanted to say "Sinners, put down that PC! Yay unto thee, I have seen thy torrid posts laid upon the altar of MeFi, blasphemous rants at his most holiest of Steves. Do not think we have not seen thy wicked bedmaking with Beelzebub Gates! Now, cower before the mighty OSX and repent thy ways! Oh wicked Window user does thou not see the read error of thy ways?!

I think its kind of funny, better than the iFlea or whatever the tictac sized iPod parody was.

And they get bonus points if there's space in the cross of the cross so I can put my weed in there.

I think this is great! You really never know when you may need to crucify a really tiny Jesus. Well, this solves that long-standing problem, and plays music to boot! Win-Win!

So mabye I'll get that, and an iPod nano, and one of these, and stage little debates on my shoulders on the merits of OS X, and get punched out on the street by random passersby for sheer toolishness! God I'm bored. I could eat paste. Also the fourth design across that I linked to really makes me think they oughta do a goatse version.

They should have had rounded corners, to match the shuffle, and to make a softer cuter cross to go around your neck.

Perhaps this post would have been better if you had explained what an iPod is.
