  1. I can’t beleive they’re not going with the classic “No I in Team” slogan. They’re such forward thinkers. Maybe they’ll choose “Please refer to your iPads for your inspirational Apple catch-phrase. If you’re unable to access your inspirational slogan, please go to the nearest Genius Bar to be made to feel like an idiot”

      OK, so “There is no “I” in teamwork” is one of those trite,bumpersticker-worthy cliches that coaches, teachers and scout leaders say when they’re trying to get a group to work together. It’s something of a double entendre because the word “teamwork” is not spelled with the letter “I” AND members of a team should leave their egos (the “I”) at the door.

      At the Apple Corp, everything they produce starts with the letter “I”. It has become a cultural joke that any word that starts with the letter “I” must have something to do with Apple.

      Which brings me to where I attempt the funny. Because corporations have these stupid employee engagement/team-building meetings all the time, and that slogan would usually be just the kind of junk any Human Resources cheerleader would go for. Except not at Apple… because they love the letter “I” and would never dis it.

      Get it? Get it? Huh? Pretty funny, eh? Are you rolling on the floor yet?

      Someone just shoot me.

Apple – good to the core? … I could go on and on, but don’t want to punish you further with the fruits of my … well, I’ll leave the rest of that one to you, so I won’t write even a bit more.

    OOPS! Just noticed – the second suggestion ought to read as “I’m an Apple – Bite/Byte me?”

    Sorry, there was a read/write error in that line.
