Poking Fun At Apple

MAD Magazine Parody of Famous New Yorker Cover

Over the years, I have tended to regard Apple Computer fanboys as members of some sort of odd cult. Since Steve Jobs’s demise, the world’s largest computer company has run into some (relatively) hard times. Most recently, its release of Apple Maps has caused just derision in the marketplace. But when MAD magazine parodied the famous Manhattan-centric Saul Steinberg New Yorker cover, I could barely keep from guffawing.

The closer you look at it, the more it resembles something some hapless grade schooler would devise—one who had no knowledge of U.S. or world geography.

I hope you enjoy it.


It Will Never Be Easy

Sir Winston Churchill

Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy or that anyone who embarks on that strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events… incompetent or arrogant commanders, untrustworthy allies, hostile neutrals, malignant fortune, ugly surprise, awful miscalculations.—Sir Winston Churchill
