Agony, interrupted Wednesday February 16, 2005, 6 comments

On Saturday, February 12th at approximately 11:30 Eastern Time, a crack team of Canucki agents compromised the border of Americaland disguised as a young couple from a small southwestern Ontario town. Aided by a top agent disguised as a nine year old boy, they successfully infiltrated the country and began executing “Operation Aluminium.”

Operation Alumimium was conceived in a collaborative communication between Canucki insurgents and a group of Americans determined to subvert the system from within. Through careful planning and delicate execution, the plan was a success. Charged with bringing a 12-inch 1.5GHz Powerbook G4 across the border, the Canucki insurgents boldly stepped through Homeland Security.

Despite a last-minute botch by UPS which nearly endangered the entire process, Operation Alumimium is a complete success.

I would like to thank those friends for helping me secure my new Powerbook. It’s dead sexy. I am looking forward to being able to run all that software that the G4 Cube and iBook weren’t able to run, and besides, it’s dead sexy.

Agony, ended.

We’re concerned that our Canucki counterparts are going to develope a Pavlovian dog-like response to meeting with our team. So far, there have been 3 meetings, presents of some sort each time. And 2 of the 3 meetings have involved Apple hardware. I don’t think we can keep meeting like this…
