Lemme tell ya’ll a little secret. Come closer. Riiiiiight there. Ok, stop. This is getting creepy.
Even before starting this Friday Foolery series, I had quite a few ideas on what to feature. Ideas that I STILL haven’t gotten to yet. I figured this series could and would go on and on because foolery is as sure as death and taxes. Foolery material will always be there and more and more will keep coming. I was never worried about that. And as time went on, ya’ll — my lovely Pinchers — would keep tweeting, emailing, sending carrier pigeons of foolery so that I could add my commentary to it. Thanks for that by the way. And thank you for being a friend.
Every now and then, I happen to come across a situation in the middle of the week after I had already decided on that week’s Friday Foolery. And well… it’s SO epically foolish that it totally trumps the one I had in mind.
Pretty sure you get where I’m going at this point. Yup, that particular situation applies here.
I was on Twitter when I saw this, from St. Lunatic (or on Twitter, @280PROOF… at least for NOW. That ninja stay changing his name. Talk about “change we can believe in”… sheesh.):
“Remember the commercial where the guy brought his desktop to the coffee shop? Yea. That’s happening. Right here. Right now.”
Of course that piqued my interest because well, when does that EVER happen in real life? And if it does, why can’t it happen to me! I was jealous! But, the skeptic in me (the one who needs for you to have more people) raised an eyebrow as I read a few more of his tweets:
“I can’t believe this. He’s unwrapping his keyboard now.
“He is gonna be PISSED when he finds out they’re closing in an hour for renovations”
“The worst part? It’s an iMac. Them joints AT LEAST $1500, right?”
“I’m gonna find a way to surreptitiously twitpic.”
“he just asked me how to connect to the internet. On the new-model iMac he just unpacked inside this store. This isn’t happening.”
“St. Louis. St. Louis. Never a shortage of stories.”
“This is a whole nother level of foolishness.
@whoisyoungblood cant even top this shit.”
“They shoulda neva gave you ninjas Apple products.”
“I just walked over and showed him how to turn on his wifi. I can’t believe this. This can’t be happening.”
“he and his sister are now watching WSHH videos. I’m in Clayton (rich suburb). I can’t.”
“but we not even remotely in an appropriate location RT
@NicknotNikki @me .like he came in Starbucks specifically to floss his hoodrichness..”
“like I would expect this shit at the mall Starbucks. I’m in a small neighborhood Starbucks, in an affluent area. Where they come from???”
And I read the play-by-play with amusement as I eagerly awaited the picture tweet. Then…
– What in the iHell?!
– Now, come on. Ya’ll. My peoples my peoples. My fellow Appleheads. Steve Jobs (may he rest in peace) did NOT present his cherished treasures to the world wearing his best mockneck and jean set so that ya’ll ninjas could bring an ENTIRE desktop into Starbucks like it’s portable or some ish.
St. Lunatic immediately @’d me on Le Twitter and proclaimed it Friday Foolery. I can’t even be mad, because it’s true. It is Friday Foolery as those who have been reading this post can plainly see. He wrapped it up with this:
“WSHH video paused. . . brows furrowed. . never has sharing an outlet @ starbucks been so risky”
Word. Annnnd that sums it up. This is Cheekola reporting. Have a good evening. Stay classy, San Diego.
Pinchers, what do you make of this hot sizzling mess? Getcho cousins.
Love ya like beans love cornbread,
