Is That An App In Your Pants Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

There's been a lot of noise about the iPad in the past couple of days, some of it worthwhile, most of it retarded and fucking ridiculous. I'm working on a blog post about this, and it might be good enough to post. You never know. In the meantime, I am sure of one thing. I want to highlight the funniest remark and announce a contest.

The funniest remark came from Nathan Bowers:

I always have apps in my pants.

It wasn't intended as a joke, but it's clearly a joke waiting to happen. Since that's a gift from the gods of comedy, a setup in search of a punchline, my contest goes like this: if you come up with the funniest use of this remark in a tweet or a blog post, all you have to do is tweet it (or a link to it) and include a link to this blog post in your tweet, and you get for free, as your prize, my awesome $39 video, which has a very long title: How To Get A Kickass Job, Making Six Figures Working From Home With The Stars Of Your Community, Even If You Just Got So Fired That The Cops Hauled You Out Of The Building In Handcuffs. You also need to include the hashtag #appsinmypants.

The rules are open-ended, and that's a deliberate choice. You can submit just about anything as long as it complies with these rules.

So to be clear, to play your tweet must:
  1. Use the hashtag #appsinmypants.
  2. Include a link to this blog post.
  3. Use this remark in a funny way, or link to something on your own blog or Tumblr/YouTube/Flickr (etc.) which uses this remark in a funny way.
To win your tweet must also:
  1. Be the funniest.
And if you win, you get my $39 video, entitled How To Get A Kickass Job, Making Six Figures Working From Home With The Stars Of Your Community, Even If You Just Got So Fired That The Cops Hauled You Out Of The Building In Handcuffs. Here's a screenshot:



Here is some praise for it:



Here is a brief sample, and here is a pair of pants:



Contest ends Thursday, April 8th, at 3pm. Ready? Set. Pants!
