El Reg marks Steve Jobs for termination
Irate Yank claims assassination conspiracy
It's come as quite a surprise to Vulture Central, but we've just found out that El Reg Strategy Boutique operative Philip Mitchell has been planning the assassination of Steve Jobs.
The proof comes in the form of this teaser pic of Jobs we use to illustrate our insights into the wonderful world of Apple.
According to one irate Yank, it's clear evidence of Phil's aim to have the Cupertino main man taken out:
I don't know what kind of message your pathetic grab bag of bitchin is trying to send to people --- but that pic of Steve Jobs with the big red X through it looks suspiciously to me like you're trying to incite somebody to kill Steve Jobs.
I may be wrong, maybe you're just trying to incite somebody to hurt him a little, but in this country (US), that kind of photo is an indication you want someone injured. You are not doing yourselves -- or Steve Jobs any good by running that photo.
How would you feel, Mr. Mitchell, if your face was posted on the internet with a big red X through it? Please be so kind as to remove it -- just to make me happy.
Crikey, that's very cross hairs, and no messing. ®
"but in this country (US), that kind of photo is an indication you want someone injured."
No, John, it isn't. A great deal of us in this country see that as a picture with a red X on it, with no further meaning without context. Please refrain in future from projecting your opinions onto an entire country. You make us look bad to the rest of the world.
RE: Speaks volumes
"I wonder what they make of that big red St George's Cross on our flag."
Not a thing. Ask most of them to draw "the English flag" and I bet over 90% will draw a Union jack. The remaining percentage will wound themselves fatally with the crayons.
I guess our country truly is leading the world in "fastest mass-retardation ever."
