Wow. Is there anything a Mac can't do?

that slogan is a good slogan. so good, in fact, I think it should be applied to other things. like, "there's no wrong way to hit your spouse." or "there's no wrong way to commit nonconsentual sodomy."

It didn't seem that funny to me, either. However, I've always found French inherently funny because of all the letters that aren't pronounced.

It's the simplicity of the joke which made it so funny to me.

It reads like a mod instruction, which had me laughing... my French isn't as good as it used to be, but I believe the gist of it is:

Picture 1: "Disassemble your Mac Mini properly, as explained here (link)"

Picture 2: "Throw the unecessary components of your Mac Mini (namely everything inside) into the garbage."

Picture 3: "*drumroll* I present you the 'iToilet'.  Who wouldn't be impressed by your new dispenser?!"

Picture 4: "--Something about your mother... I'm too rusty to translate this one properly--"

Who needs to know French to understand that joke!? :D

My Mac-Mini dream is having at least 5 stacked and used as a mini cluster.
Why?  Cause its Stupid-Awesome! :P

It's the perfect size too.

I saw one at Best Buy and thought that it was too small. It just needs to be a little bit bigger or flatter and wider.

I'm a Mac lover (not in THAT way) but I think its great.

Stupid is the kid who's parents bought him a brand new dual top of the line G5 PowerMac when they first came out, and what he do?  he guts it, and tosses in the parts from an AMD K6 PC, and give the guts away to his friend.

Parents buy him a $3000 Mac.
He replaces the innerds with $100 worth of PC.
and gives the parts away.

THAT is stupid.
