    my god. this is just dumb. He believes that they were selling the ipod to help symptoms of the disease.

    wow... it is raising money for treatment. he should be happy if money is raised to help fight this horrible illness.

    but that doesnt mean he should be dumb and think an ipod will cure him

    This must be a joke, from a MS fan I presume. Hence the Zune comment on the end

    Yes, it's a joke.

    BTW, quoting things without linking to the source is bad form.

    Found the source...a blogger who likes to do fake news stories with attempts at humor.

    it's obviously a joke, and i doubt it's from MS fans, as it implies that zune will obviously be virus/problem ridden

    It's an iPod, not a dildo.

    If you want immediate pleasure from a battery operated object, please buy the dildo ...

    Anyone else spotted the 'Oscar Goldman' reference? Tipped it off immediately that the story was fake (and not very funny), although only people of a certain age may get that one. :eek:

    I can't believe people didn't realise it was satire. Seriously, even the title is dripping in it, how did people not pick that up?!?

    The mind boggles.

    Well done for getting the style of 'The Onion' spot on.

    Anyone else think the Onion isn't as funny as it used to be?

    The makers of that show really should have called him "The Six Million-Bajillion Dollar Man" to make the show more futureproof. It just sounds ridiculous now.

    Well Americans generally don't get jokes unless they're very obvious. However, in this case.......a Londoner and Norwegian didn't get it either.....hmmmm

    I got it, but although it's reasonably funny, I'm now feeling guilty about finding it amusing.

    Very bad taste, but what the hell, nicely done.
