In a bizarre misfiring of Apple’s usually spot-on PR machine, CEO Steve Jobs issued another in his continuing series of public blog-style posts on Apple’s web site. While other offerings covered digital music and third party applications for the iPhone, the subject of today’s missive was unexpected.
In a 5,000 word essay published today, Jobs offered his “Thoughts On Hotpants”.
Whatever happened to hotpants? Man, I really digged those. Those were awesome. Women should start wearing those again. I’m sure they couldn’t have been terribly comfortable – kind of like walking around with a permanent wedgie.
Why do some people say “wedgie” and some people say “snuggy”? Are those the same thing?
Anyway, man did they look hot! Hey, is that where they got the name?! “Hot pants”? Wow, I just thought of that.
Man, I am so baked.
Do brownies have animal products in them?
Eh, screw it. I’m getting me some brownies.
Some Apple followers took this as a sign that the company would be branching out into the realm of crotch-cutting women’s fashions.
“I’ve long thought that Apple should make sexy garments for fabulous babes,” said Your Mac Life‘s Shawn King.
“But I think that about a lot of companies.”
Apple spokesperson Cynthia McLaren refused to confirm or deny whether or not Jobs’ opining on the subject of hotpants indicated a new direction for the company.
“All I know is, I have to go out and get a big plate of brownies,” McLaren sighed.
