This might surprise you Sithizens, but the Galactic Empire has a bit of a bad reputation in some parts of the universe. Apparently some people think it’s “evil” to oppress an entire galaxy for its own good, or have your Stormtroopers set fire to people’s homes and/or the people themselves because they refused to obey the law and sell out their only child, even though he’s adopted.
Well, if streamlining people’s political choices or using unorthodox but effective methods to expedite police inquiries is wrong, then we don’t want to be right. Next you’ll be saying that Darth Vader didn’t bring balance to the Force by lightsabering the Jedi in the back, or that building a moon-sized doomsday laser isn’t the best way to make people feel safe and help them sleep at night.
Right. And we guess people want “equal rights” and “freedom” and “not to have their children forced into slavery to build apocalyptic death weapons”? Pshaw! We laugh maniacally in your general direction! Ahahaha! HAHA! MWAHAhahaHAHAHA!
Anyway, what were we saying? Stupid required by evil law monologues. Ah, yes. Apple. We’ve told you already that Steve Jobs is building the Galappletic iMpire. What we didn’t know then is that he’s already several steps ahead of us in evil stakes. You see, Jobs isn’t content with blowing up a planet or two. Recently, Apple deleted an entire galaxy.
According to Tom’s Guide, one of several new wallpapers in Mac OS 10.7 Lion features an extremely altered image of the Andromeda Galaxy, in which the M110 Galaxy is completely gone (original and Apple version above).
So next time you’re thinking of accusing the Galactic Empire of being “evil”, concentrate on fighting TRUE EVIL instead: take your iPhone and go and throw it at an Apple Store instead.
Thanks to Sith Lord Steve Higgins for the tip.
