As long as people keep getting stupid, there will be a Mother F.U.C.K.E.R movement. So people? Here’s installment #2:
Apparently, get this, You aren’t supposed to eat your iphone. Right. Wanna hear that again?
Don’t. Eat. Your. iPhone.
“SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: Ingesting or inhaling your iPhone or iPod earbuds may be hazardous to your health.”
Ok, I get that people are in to burning things or sniffing things or whatever. But since when is eating your iPhone worthy of CNN reporting? Isn’t there, like, a war going on? Global warming to report about? Socialized medicine? Anything? Beuhler? No? Eating your iPhone it is, then.
Good choice, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Here, this is for you:
Take this and stick it to your forehead and repeat to yourself several times a day “Mother for using common knowledge everywhere. Mother for using common knowledge everywhere…”
In the mean time, I’ll keep reminding my five month old not to put his iPhone in his mouth. The rest of the family, though, is pretty much up to speed on this. Apparently your viewers are at the level of a five month old. God bless this country if this is the future of our nation. We need it.
Sweet mercy. I say let adults chew on the iPhone, let it short out, let Darwin be right this time.

Aren’t iphones like really, really expensive? Why in the world would someone have to be warned not to ingest their highly priced electronic device? Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go take a little nibble out of my wii.

Oh man. I thought you were going to say you acquired a holy iPhone and then your kid ATE it or SLOBBERED on it or something equally dreadful. But no. This is even more brain-imploding than the Bumbo recall.

You know, just the other day I had to hide my phone from myself because the craving to eat my phone was just so intense that I was afraid I would give in! The grey plastic beckoned to me like warm, gooey chocolate; the keys kept calling my name, begging me for just a little taste; and the screen, oh, the delicious screen just kept flashing, “EAT ME! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO! CALORIE FREE, YOU KNOW!”
Um. Yeah. Or not.
