UPSIDE-DOWN LAND

JUST TO BE CLEAR, I was not intending to use my iPhone upside-down in order to make a "joke."

I WAS MERELY DISTRACTED by the gigantic and authentic STOCK TICKER, and the fact that if I broke it, it would cost the show ten thousand ACTUAL DOLLARS.

That is all.

this is the sort of thing that proves my theory that the interweb has a surplus of nitpicky, neurotic critics with maybe a wee bit too much time on their hands. myself included from time to time, to be fair.

Ten thousand dollars!? That's crazy!

I'll give you a pass on the iPhone controversy, but I must call you out for failing to capitalize on a ripe opportunity for an homage to the "Dead Parrot" sketch. What were you thinking?

Thrown off by a mere giant stock ticking antique worth less than millions? Mr. Hodgman, to heck with the iPhone, you need to work on your insouciance!

thanks for clearing things up - now i can finally turn my tv right-side up. although to be honest, most things on tv don't make any less sense being upside-down. oo, how po-mo of me.

Guess I'm not into gadgets that much, to be honest I didn't even notice the phone was upside down. Nor did I care. I found the segment hilarious. I too would have been distracted by trying not to break the ticker. I too thought of Dead Parrot but it really wouldn't have fit in to the whole segment. I thought the dead canary was a great homage to miners actually. Question do mole men keep canaries underground?

Are iPhones PC-compatible, anyway?

Skippy said...

You could buy dozens of your own stock tickers, don't worry about his.

Oh, and rock that iPhone.

Don't scratch it though.

Perhaps it was an ear-phone, not an eye-phone.

Omar said...

Annje, I was thinking something along the lines of having the bird be blue. Or maybe reply that it was just pining for the fjörds. Something subtle.

Tim said...

Mole-men do not keep canaries. They have evolved in such a way that underground gases make them stronger. This is the real reason miners need to be warned of gas build-up. No-one wants to have to fight off super-powered mole-men.

Gloria said...

No worries.

It was totally cute.

Very funny segment, one of the best in a while, iFlap or not.

Displaying the iPhone on TV is particularly difficult. I also had an iPhone fumbling moment in one of Apple's man-on-the-street ads--somehow, it disappeared and reappeared in my hands:

I'm also curious why (and how) Money Beak would be calling. One assumes from Parrot's Heaven, though one imagines God's eternal annoyance with repeating His commands...
