The Rum and Popcorn 100

I got a lot of problems with these people!

100. I’m a Mac. I’m a PC! You’re all idiots.

So now, the world isn’t divided enough between religions, sports teams, musical genres, and drugs of choice, we’re now defined by the type of computer we use? Macintosh’s (admittedly somewhat amusing) ad campaign produced a response ad with all these cool people telling the world that they are a PC. Hell you won’t get paid like John Hodgman and Justin Long, but you can even be in one of the ads!

Um, all that’s great, but I can’t be down with letting objects define me when the reasons I own such objects have nothing to do with the core of my humanity. I’m a PC. You know why? I have two that were given to me for free. I was totally planning on maybe buying a Mac with my Christmas bonus. You know what this whole thing tells me I am? Cheap.
