my iphone is doing it!
With apologies to Merlin, the top five reasons this cartoon makes me want to throw up a little.
- Wife badgering husband.
- Wife badgering husband about mowing the lawn.
- Jeans in a hammock? Plaid shirt?
- The way the iPhone joke was inserted into a scenario that is just dying for a New Yorker Cartoon Anti-Caption contest. (Except Radosh would have to change the contest to the Time Magazine Cartoon of the Week Anti-Caption contest. Which would make the contest a lot less fun for everyone involved.)
- The fact that one prominent blogger friend of mine who shall remain nameless (he told me this off the record) sees the cartoon as a form of insider commentary on a particular popular technology columnist. I'll admit, though, that he was probably being "ironic." Which is very un-iPhone, if you ask me.
