A shocked Apple world could only sit by and watch today as the company campus was invaded by a race of saucer-men of undetermined origin.
Landing in waves of sleek saucers, the saucer-men disembarked and positioned themselves about Apple’s headquarters.
“Nobody knows why they’re here or where they’ve come from,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs at a press conference this afternoon, as he sought to calm the public.
“Most certainly they have come from beyond the moon, but their intentions so far seem peaceful. We can only assume from how they comport themselves that they are attempting to communicate with us as iconic examples of civilization’s potential for good and the promise that mankind can be strong, resolute and upstanding.
“At least that’s what I get out of it. Tim seems to think they may be selling something.”
Leaning in to a microphone, Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook said “Uh, yes, I think it may be a big car ad. Or maybe cola.”
Having exited their saucers, the saucer-men seem to be contenting themselves by simply standing about and striking various Devo-like poses.
“They really look quite jaunty, don’t they?” said Chief Technologist Avie Tevanian, admiring several nearby saucer-men. “Standing there with their arms akimbo…
“They really spruce the place up,” Tevanian concluded.
“It’s really going to be a shame when I burn it to the ground,” he added, his lips curling into a sinister smile. “Heh-heh-heh.”
Looking about suddenly startled Tevanian said “Did I say that last part out loud?”
So far all attempts to communicate directly with the saucer-men have met with failure. Having tried spoken language, sign language and flash cards, the company says it will try interpretive dance next.
