Apple CEO Steve Jobs was reportedly stopped at Japan’s Kansai International Airport because a security scan detected weapons in his luggage.
The weapons were Ninja throwing stars that Jobs was bringing back to the U.S. According to SPA Magazine, Jobs was returning home from a vacation in July when the incident happened.
Frankly, I’m a little steamed at Jim Dalrymple. What he’s done in reporting this is violate an unwritten rule of Apple coverage. Just as reporters in the 1930s helped cover up Roosevelt’s illness and in the 1960’s helped cover up Kennedy’s philandering, we in the Apple press community help cover up the fact that Jobs is a ninja. We’ve been doing it for years.
It’s one of the first things you learn! “Don’t talk about Tim Cook’s farting and don’t talk about Jobs being a ninja.”
In Jim’s defense, it’s stupid because it’s so obvious. I laugh every time someone makes a joke about his “black turtleneck” because it’s so obvious it’s not a turtleneck. It’s a full body suit he just wears jeans over. It’s like Superman just put on pants and everyone continued to ignore the fact that from the waist up he’s still Superman.
But shame on Jim for not mentioning he was going to do this on the elite Apple press email list we all belong to. We here at Crazy Apple Rumors Site (which, by the way, Wired, is trademarked in the state of Washington) have known of this incident since it happened back in July. But we did what good reporters do: we covered it up.
That’s our commitment to you: covering up the stuff you really shouldn’t know about.
