Poet Erik Ott (also known as Big Poppa E) got canned by Apple for doing this bit at a recent in-house talent show due to a VP’s objection. Way to not have a sense of humor, Apple. Think Different, indeed.
now that is some bullshit…
but if you can’t live w/o your job, don’t diss on it. and well this man can live w/o it
any of us in the U.S. who have had to deal with rude and impatient people on the phone then spend all too little time with one of of our polite and cute-sounding and efficient but not impatient neighbors to the north can relate to this and love it. it’s sad that the apple folk just didn’t get it.
Hey, is that microsoft that I’m beginning to smell in my apple????
Well, this makes total sense. I mean, how could he possibly thought he was as “professional” as that woman cawing “Summertime”? Just because Apple portrays themselves as being cool, and “different” and hip doesn’t mean they actually ARE, does it?
I feel so much more secure knowing that Apple Computer (my favorite, and life’s blood, mind you) is the same kind of corporation as all the others – eschewing light-hearted, self-deprecating humor, in favor of toeing an arbitrary line of “decency”.
Nice one Big Poppa E.
