“I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of tech-savvy people smugly showing off that new hunk of entertainment hardware, the iPod personal stereo. Well, I might not have the scratch to get one, but frankly, I don’t want the white-corded wonder. I have my very own iPod—in my mind.”

” I have my very own iPodin my mind.”  <- That sounds like something Gary Busey would say wink

I actually can relate…

years ago, I had a mini-interview to go on school exchange for 1 year to japan. in the interview, the teachers asked me what if I had no work to do and got bored at school. Rather than saying the sensible thing and “study” or do homework, no, I babbled on about how I can entertain myself by recalling songs in my mind like a walkman. seriously, that’s what I told them.

i didn’t get the exchange…. ;_;

Well, he has a point. But his skull definitely still is lightyears behind the design of the iPod wink

wow, nice job understanding the comedy, you idiots.

lol @ Nathan Adams, that’s great (well, in a sad way since you didn’t get the exchange)...

yeah, i look back and laugh too. I have no idea why I said that…..  guess just being nervous i guess, had to make at least one #### up in the interview.

i don’t think it was the reason for not getting the exchange (more that the other guy did everything bar ‘pleasure’ the teacher), but still…

my mind iPod sure wasn’t all that crash hot on the way home from drinks tonight though…  (anything after 10, i won’t bring the iPod into town. I’ve had 3 failed attempted muggings against me, my luck has to run out sometime…  so the iPod stays home when I go drinking)

And for those people who didn’t get the joke, GET A LIFE AND LAUGH A LITTLE!!

I got the joke. But he still is a fruit.

Posted by MadDog5145 on August 20, 2003 at 7:05 AM (PDT)


I’ll have to get some one to tickle me to make me laugh for that.  LOOSER!!!

Posted by Michael de Silva on August 20, 2003 at 8:09 AM (PDT)


foo_foo - he’s talking about his brain not having any moving parts, not the iPod.

And Michael.  If you want to insult someone, make sure you spell it correctly.  It’s L-O-S-E-R…unless of course you’re commenting on his promiscuity.  Then looser would be correct. ;D
