The New Apple Drinking Game

Many folks know that I prefer Macintosh computer systems to alternatives. However, I am exhausted by recent Apple "nonovations" and propose a new drinking game. Here's how to play.

  1. Sit down in a safe place with access to any recent Apple event keynote. You will not be driving ANYWHERE after this
  2. Equip yourself with a shot glass and bottle of your favourite intoxicant
  3. Pour a shot
  4. Start the event keynote and every time any Apple executive uses either of "beautiful" or "thin" to describe any Apple product, drink the shot.
  5. Refill quickly because this is an easy game to win and very fast paced
  6. Prepare to be hammered in the first few minutes, first minute if you are watching Phil Schiller.

Both sad and pathetic.

I still prefer Macintosh computers, although I do wish that Apple would get their thumbs out and update the Mac Pro, and not f*ck it up in the process.
