Thread Starter 
In light of the holiday season and the approaching MacWorld, I thought we'd have a little fun.

Twas the night before MacWorld.
Steve Jobs was straight blazin'
Revolution 2 and G5s
ready to phase em!

Okay - here's my stab!

Twas the night before Macworld, when all through the land
Not a Machead was stirring they were all in San Fran
From thousands of miles, they paid their own fare
In hopes that St. Steve soon would be there;

The Macheads were nestled all snug on the street
Camping all night to get a good seat
Wed just nodded off
When there arose such a clatter:
I sprang from my bag to see what was the matter

Away to the entrance I flew like a flash
Tore open the doors and then gasped!
Wall-sized photos of apples cool stuff
Graced all the walls, the floors and the roof
Then out of nowhere, what should appear,
But a huge iSleigh and eight pissed reingineers!

With a turtle-necked driver, so livid and peeved
I knew in a moment it must be St. Steve
Angrier than lions his temper was known
And he screamed at his reingineers like no one was home

Now Avie! Now, Sina! Now Jon Rubenstein!
On, Ivey! On, See-Mong! Dont waste any time!
My Keynotes tomorrow! You ninny! You dork!
We dont want a repeat of Macworld New York!

I crawled into a corner and gleamed with delight
As ol St.Steve worked into the night
He tested the scanner, he tested the mice
He tested them once, then tested them twice
Mr. Perfection was making damn sure
That his keynote went hitch-less, perfect and pure

So much is riding on a standing ovation
I must bring my flock to total elation!
But alas, I know that they wont be let down
By the time Im finished theyll be painting the town!

And so he returned to his super iSled,
And hauled out a giant bondi blue safe that read:
The Toppest of Secrets: For Steves Eyes Only
(If you AI folks see this youre sure to be sorry!)
Then St.Steve crawled into his Safe
And what he pulled out put a smile on his face

Thats when my eyes fell right out of my head!
And I thought for a moment I was dreaming or dead;
Steve must have heard us whine and complain
For he was holding an LCD iMac with a G4 brain!!

My mouth was drooling, my tongue touched the floor
Then I realized he wasnt done yet THERE WAS MORE!
Back into the safe went our hero, our Saint
And he rummaged around so long I could faint
What was he doing, whats taking so long?
And that odd metallic sound (is he smoking a bong?)

Then out of the safe came an arm, then a leg
Then St. Steve emerged with a halo round his head
Birds started chirping, Angels were singing
ITunes was rocking - some new band was swinging
And there in the grip of the genius mans hands:
A titanium G5 tower with oodles of RAM!
Gigawire, DDR and all the buzz words
Hey Mike Dell and Bill Gates eat my turd!!

Thats when I shrieked in utter delight
St. Steve started screaming Turn on the lights!
Theres an intruder in here a freak a spy
And at the hands of Apple Legal you SHALL DIE!

Well, I didnt feel to try and explain
So off I took in a flash once again
With all the good scoop on the next days highlight

Happy Macworld to all, and to all a Good Night!!
