  2. Colonel Panic says:

    I’ve already written the crib notes for it, so I’ll be ready (just don’t look under my sleeve).

  3. digitalcowboy says:

    No matter what time you post your sweaty diatribes, Moltz, I can still get top ten.

    Look behind you right now.

    I’m everywhere.

  4. CB says:

    uhm, I think this sentence needs some work cuz my brain can’t wrap itself around the meaning:

    “Sitting at home, you don’t as palpable a sense of the sheer size of Jobs’ will to make you buy stuff you really don’t need.”

  5. Joe Anonymous says:

    Woo hoo!!! Top ten – first time!

  6. Colonel Panic says:

    In fact, I’ve already taken notes on part 2, which has not yet been released….

  7. Biff Whammy says:

    Can’t I just buy the Cliffs Notes?

  8. Apple Lopsider says:

    “The baby didn’t have a Expo badge on… That’s two people and only one badge!”

    Pretty rich coming from you, Johns.

  9. Gom says:

    Twelvethiness? I’ll take that *any* day…

    except quiz day. Man, that’s gunna be teh suck.

  10. Sudo Nym says:

    If you get to touch Ron Johnson again, that makes it a multi-touch, which is something all the kids are talking about these days.

  11. scared monster, also known as Living Proof Of Something, Surely, says:

    I won’t let you use us to have a real job.
    what the f***
    Geek or not ?

    (Ant “Or not” is no acceptable answer.)

  12. Del says:

    I’m ready for the quiz. Also I’m quivering in anticipation of what Apple exec you get to touch.

  13. Brother Mugga says:

    Hah ha hah ha hah.


    Also, what’s with some people giving it a thumbs down? Cocks. What say we go round a whup their asses (see how effortlessly I segue (snark) from the British to the American vernacular? Oh, I’m so cosmopolitan, me)?

    Finally, I once (multi-)touched *myself* while looking at a picture of an Apple Executive. Does that count?

  14. The Miner Mi Nes and The Assayer As says:

    Finally I’ve seen the light!
    @Apple Lopsider, you’re right!

    Not two — one sage and one who heckles —
    But one who writes like Hyde and Jekyll!

    So will it be long before we’ll
    Get a two-for-one donation deal?

    Another question lingers, though…
    Do both his wives and children know?

    So how did you find out, A.L.?
    Don’t tell me you are John as well!

    In any case, it’s all for best.
    Let’s put this doggerel to rest.

    Hark! As I close my metered tale,
    I hear an oath float through the dale!

    “In brightest day, in blackest night,
    No topic shall escape my sight,
    Let those who worship Apple’s might,
    Beware Johns’ power: Witty Insight!”*

    * With apologies to Green Lantern.

  15. Huh? says:

    “No one more common”?
    Dude! They SOOOO used your toothbrush!

    Oh, and the smell in the air? My deodorant.
    I told you I’d be following you everywhere.

  16. Ace Deuce says:

    “…and the dog was wearing a badge.”

    That would be Deputy Dog, right? Since they’re allowing Toons to attend Macworld this time, please try to touch Jessica Rabbit for me. Thanks.
