In a disturbing sequence of events of unknown portent reported by concerned Apple employees, an evil-looking goat has been sighted all across the Cupertino campus.
While its purpose is unknown, the goat has appeared at Caffe Macs, in several conference rooms and in countless cubicles, striking fear into the hearts of engineers, marketing analysts and education sales specialists.
“What does it want?!” cried a visibly distraught Tamalyn Nichols, a higher education sales representative.
“Can’t anyone find out what it wants?!”
Nichols dropped her belongings and ran screaming down the hall, flailing her arms above her head.
“It’s not so much the evil-looking goat I mind as it is the invisible evil boys choir going ‘AH! AH! AH! AH!’ every time he shows up,” said software engineer Eric Schell. “It’s really hard to concentrate with that going on.”
So far, no evil has come of the evil-looking goat’s appearances, but some believe it is an ill omen sent by Satan himself, and is the harbinger of plague, pestilence and poor market share for the iPod.
Others believe it’s just a goat.
“Whichever it is, I wish it’d just go away,” Schell said.
“It really creeps me out. Goats just creep me out in general, really, but… an evil-looking goat…”
Apple has contracted for the services of a licensed exorcist to deal with its evil-looking goat problem, as well as alerting animal control.
