An interesting statistic was revealed when Apple reported its quarterly results on January 18th.
According to the company’s report filed with the SEC, Apple employs over 1,000 eunuchs.
Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook explained, the company recognized the value of employing eunuchs several years ago.
“They’re well-educated and they’re very hard workers,” Cook said. “It’s good for the company and it’s good for them. They don’t like to talk about it, but a lot of them haven’t had work since the 1920s when the Chinese emperor was overthrown.”
Cook says that once you get used to their high-pitched voices, their penchant for forming cliques and their tendency to sneak up behind you and scare the bejeezus out of you, the fact that they have no genitals only enters your mind every five or ten seconds while you’re talking to them.
“Frankly, their private life is none of my business,” Cook said. “Although, I hear they throw some wild parties! Ha-ha! Ha-ha!
“Uh, but still… none of my business. Just something I heard… around. I wasn’t asking or anything. Sometimes people just tell me stuff.”
Cook indicated that eunuchs hold a variety of positions at Apple.
“They excel at project management, but we also have them in testing and documentation.”
Cook paused a moment before adding “And, yes, a few of them, um… dress [CEO] Steve [Jobs].
“There’s… there’s nothing unusual about that. It’s industry standard.”
