This is a site me and my wife made for a fake iphone made of wood that we use to counteract people's non-socially-acceptable uses of a real iPhone.
how do they counteract it?
by throwing it at them?
I’m always dubious about the “I hate cellphones” or specifically “I hate iphones” people. Usually what they consider socially unacceptable involves having a conversation at normal volume in a public area.
i find their attitudes and rants only the tiniest bit less annoying than people who actually are grossly offending with phones… like theater talkers.
Was this supposed to be funny?
let’s count how many fanboys that think this is not funny .
It’s not funny ’cause the people behind the site are sanctimonious idjits.
Looks like you’ve pissed off a few iphone lovers already. I’d say it’s a success! Now I gotta buy one.
I thought it was funny until I saw they are actually selling these things? The site is kinda funny… the people that would actually by this, I’m not so sure about.
Funny idea, a few bits were amusing. Overall, a bit meh.
Clearly, not appreciating a mediocre joke makes me an apple fan-boy.
“non-socially-acceptable” – ha, don’t tell me what to do.
And why on earth do you care about the make/model of someone’s phone?
This is totally giving me wood.
I guess I’m an apple fanboy too. Middle fingers are hilarious!
There is a “beat down” app. Awesome.
Sounds like a bunch of you already have iWood’s stuck where the sun doesn’t shine. Loosen up a bit, you might get splinters being that uptight.
They’ll come around…
No one’s going to give you a second look anymore when you break out your iPhone (unless you’ve had it dipped in 24 karat gold). But when I’m sporting my iWood, I guarantee I’ll be turning heads. The ultimate status symbol with no monthly fees.
The ultimate status symbol. The status? Douche.
I know two people who own iPhones. Both give me douche-chills. So, because of that, this is funny.
“My wife and I.”
haha, these comments are worthy of a Youtube video!
I have an iPhone, and this is hilarious. If you’re getting offended you’re missing the whole point!
I don’t like iPhones or fanboys, but iWood may be worse. That they’re actually being sold seems like a crass money grab that weakens the already flaccid premise.
Also, who are these people to tell me my behavior isn’t socially acceptable. Fuck off.
Excellent. I have an i-phone. I love it. But I also have a sense of humor. I mean, come on. Some people are a little ridiculous with their gadgets and technology… I think the i-wood is hilarious commentary and super fun.
“That’s right,” the man said. “I couldn’t remember the word.” He was the only t, then high school students, and, finally, to anyone aged 13 and over. The website currently has more than 175 million active users in amount of visitors, making Facebook the most popular social network, followed by MySpace and Twitter.other human at the loading dock this morning. The man didn’t have a name, just a number, like the rest of the robots.
wow, impressed by all the venom – you’ve ruffled feathers in a serious way, achieved art I dare say
bravo, i love it
