    The awesome power of the Crazy Apple Rumors Site is, um, well, awesome, I guess. What’s another word for “awesome”?

    And the only way to be more of a douchebag than a douchebag fake character is to believe that the character is a real person and call him a douchebag. Douchebags.

    Is Artie MacStrawman going to be another Father Christmas?

    Just when I come to REALLY love him, Mummy tells me he doesn’t exist.

  6. Jeffrey says:

    Crack. It’s not just for breakfast any more.

  7. Candy Apple says:

    Artie MacSeven!

    BTW Moltz we still need February 9th posting and a Help Desk on the 10th and then you can have a day off.

    You’re a slave driver.

    Twelve bottles of beer!

    So, what’ll you guys be drinking?

    Speaking of douchebags.

    I invent things.

    I patented the first thing that cleans lungs effectively.

    No this is real.


    We have been awarded the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Technology of the Year Award in the field of Therapeutic and Diagnostic Purgatory Devices.

    We beat a douchebag.

    Now I suppose you want me to invent a sexbot.

    Folks, just get on a plane to Amsterdam.

  13. buthidae says:

    shawk, I want my lesbian ninja sexbot, and I want it now.

    I’m not paying you to slouch around. In fact – I’m not paying you at all!

  14. OMGHAX Fan Club says:

    Oh my. Was it an analyst who said it? If so, then I’m not surprised. Those guys only see what they want to see. Wait, does this mean that we can take over the world now?

  15. shawk says:

    I have no idea how we got the prize.

    Same thing with the Museum of Science exhibit, they emailed us.

    You will need to wait for the methane hydrate extractor to take over the world.

    And would you want a world powered by cow farts?

    I think not!

  16. Ace Raider says:

    Awesome John.

    Next, we are going to see CARS quoted on CNN.

  17. Ace Deuce says:

    When is Nerdie McSweatervest going to start his blog? Because, you know, he’s got Information at His Fingertips┬«.

    Hey Moltz, I couldn’t find your usual schpeel in Mac World this month. Do I need to look harder or did they can your lazy no help desk posting ass.

  19. John Moltz says:

    The bit’s been canned. They still send me checks, though. That was nice of them. They didn’t have to do that.

    Oh, and no Help Desk tomorrow.

  20. Re: Comment 6

    I’m like Father Christmas. I like that. You don’t know which of the Artie MacStrawmen in the malls is the real one.

    Besides, all Windows users believe in Santa Claus, which proves that they must be delusional.

  21. Del says:

    Artie isn’t real? Than who do I have a date with tomorrow?

  22. Del says:

    Maybe someone who knows the difference between then and than. That would be helpful for me.

    I don’t care if you never post another Help Desk. I don’t care if your socks don’t match. Go ahead, wear that ugly shirt out in public if you want to. Gulp your food. Slouch. Fart. Skip a few trips to the gym. Put off cleaning the garage. It just doesn’t matter. Boy, am I ever grumpy.

    I’m going to go throw rocks at the neighbor’s kids.

    Zip up.

  25. Streetrabbit says:

    Making people will come to no good I’m tellin’ ya!

    Look at Dr Frankenstein or those kids that made Kelly LeBrock in Weird Science…..

    Belay my last. Carry on.

    Hey! You kids get that straw man off my lawn!

    So it seems that what’s happening here is that Artie MacStrawman just totally used Artie MacStrawman’s toothbrush!
