Most of them were *very* old jokes, but I thought the "Barbie Edition" was pretty funny.

lame

Why is it that Windows people have absolutely no photoshopping skills.

I mean, even the lame attempts at silly designs from sites like SpyMac are better than these.

lmao! that was funny, unlike the badly photochopped pictures. seems to me that these bozos are the kinda people that would spend $10,000 modding their civic to get 50 more horsepower, instead of buying a better/faster car for the same amount of money. before the flame throwers come out... i like the civic, but why not take that money and by a nice used lexus gs or something... sorry for going off on a tangent, but i had this argument with a friend the other day.

My ratings (out of 10)

Photoshopping Quality: 3.5 (my dad could do better than most of those)

Humor: 1.5 (Old "jokes", plus a number that didn't make sense at all like the 'you wanted to run 3 apps without getting a Blue Screen of Death" which I wasn't sure how that would apply to a G5 at all ... these lusers realize the Mac doesn't run Windows, right?)

Factual Accuracy: 0. Come on. Comparing a G5 to a Celeron? Jobs dumpster diving behind Intel (one of the worse photoshopping skillz posts too; at least make things proportionate!). If you're going to diss the G5 you have to at *LEAST* base your complaints on a top-of-the-line AMD processor, not some outdated rubbish from Intel!

Maturity Level of board: 2 (slightly higher than your average 13-year-old).

Oh come on... factual accuracy? The whole point of such a contest is exaggeration. They would be boring if each had to be checked for "factual accuracy".

Lighten up a bit. There were some good ones in there. The orange Ricer-G5 was hilarious.

A lot of the images shown were pretty stupid, but there were a number of funny ones.

Like the person with the Dremel drilling out all the holes in the front panel.

Another I like is the image of the Mac growing on a tree branch, with the caption "Well you don't want to pick them too early."

Remember, the theme was "What Apple is doing to submitter's new G5 that takes an entire week before it ship".

Is that what he was doing? The picture was so bad that I couldn't tell!

Edit: Now that I actually look at it, it's blatantly obvious. Maybe I'm just stupid

Don't worry, I didn't get it either. At first I thought it was Jobs thowing away the crap at Intel....

My favorite was the dremel one. But others just boarder on retard level.

What is it with these guys wasting time on poor PS jobs of the G5? Why such a need to bash the Mac? Me thinks they're afraid


The Dremel one was really funny though (along with the hammer/nail one).

Farks photoshop contests have been pretty boring recently - this one was no exception. It seemed like every 3rd one was a g5 case with an intel chip of some kind.

Somethingawful.com did two really good ones this week...although the caption/ comedy goldmine one just barely qualifies on the photoshop end.

I have to agree... the only really funny one was the pic of boring each and every hole out of the front of the case (a.k.a. the dremel one).

Hah ha haa... oh, hey wait, none of them were remotely funny. Love to meet the pathetic kindergarden level photoshop lusers that feebily made these so I could congratulate them to the head with a tire iron.

More proof the world is full of *********g morons.

lighten up, Francis

OK, look, some of you need to get a grip on reality. No insult was intended by putting a celeron or pII graphic on the G5. I know, because I'm the idiot that did both of them.

There was no implied "comparison" of performance. The G5 is obviously superior. The theme was "what they're doing to it". If I ordered one and it shipped with celerons...

I had a few minutes at work, and it was a simple cut n' paste. Yes, my ps skills suck, some of the entries were lame and not very well executed, but Fark isn't worth1000.

I don't have problems with yours, just the one that said that they were making the Mac crappy by not having games on it.

Most aren't. But the people who don't have strong opinions don't constantly talk about it on newsgroups, mailing lists and blogs.

As for those who are hateful, it's to be expected. Anything that is popular will have zealots and detractors. The only things that don't suffer from this are simply unpopular and are generally ignored.
