Apple is the latest victim of The Simpson ridicule
There aren’t many celebrities who haven’t fallen victim to the comical and satirical genius of Matt Groening at some point, which in a way is a great compliment (you’re not anyone until you’ve had the piss taken out of you on The Simpsons right?). Tony Blair’s been a victim, as well as Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Bill Gates, Mick Jagger and a whole host of others. Well this time Apple, or shall I say Mapple, bore the brunt of the mockery.
The lampoonery begins when Springfield mall gets its very own Mapple store, which Lisa responds to as being “so sterile”, complete with a mipod, a miBox and other Mapple products. Krusty also has a dig by shouting how much he hates his miPod and not being able to “watch movies on a screen this small”. Bart then does what Bart does best and publicly shames Steve Mobs and the crowd of gaping geeks, just as he’s about to proclaim a new announcement.
It’s a *must-see* episode. Check out snippets of it after the jump…
He says: “You’re all losers. You think you’re cool because you buy a $500 phone with a picture of a fruit on it. Well guess what? They cost 8 bucks to make and I pee on every one! I have made a fortune off you chumps and I have invested it all in Microsoft. Now my boyfriend Bill Gates and I kiss each other on a pile of your money”.

Wait, I’m confused. Is this satire or a documentary? :-)
Hilarious and true. Loved the grammatical correction of Think Differently in the end.
