One does not grow up along the streets of Metropolis and not know about Superman, the Man of Steel. That audience includes little girls from Brooklyn whose brothers are card carrying comic book collectors.
One aspect of Superman that I found fascinating was his alter ego, Bizzaro, a Frankenstein-like super monster whose characteristics have been adopted by Apple’s modern day critics. Here’s what I mean.
The Bizzaro World
At a very basic level, Bizzaro, from Bizzaro World, is the mirror image opposite of Superman. Instead of heat vision, he has freeze vision. Instead of super breath, Bizzaro has vacuum breath.
You get the idea, but it goes much further. Superman is handsome. Bizzaro is Frankensteinesque. Superman’s weakness is kryptonite, which is green. Bizzaro’s weakness is blue kryptonite.
If Superman is here to bring peace and justice to the world, what does Bizzaro do?
The Bizzaro Code says, ‘Us Do Opposite Of All Earthly Things.’ And, ‘Us Hate Beauty. Us Love Ugliness.’
And, the ultimate line from the Code, ‘Is Big Crime To Make Anything Perfect On Bizarro World.’ That explains where Apple’s critics are from and why they write the way they do.
To those tech pundits and bloggers from Bizzaro World, Apple is the perfect company. Apple makes beautiful products that make customers happy. How can anyone from Bizzaro World stand for that? It’s a crime to them.
Today’s news media and much of the tech blogosphere seems to have been infiltrated by writers from Bizzaro World. How else do you explain that facts are foreign, and lies, innuendo, and opinion are substituted instead.
Are Wall Street analysts from Bizzaro World? I think the evidence is overwhelming. How else do you explain that Apple’s great financial condition makes it a company that is less valued by Wall Street than lowly Dell?
In fact, I’m convinced that Apple’s previous investors cashed out when the stock hit $700 a share, only to be replaced by investors from Bizzaro World who want to see the stock continue to fall.
Of course, I can carry this theme further.
Doesn’t it appear to you that many elected representatives in government are from Bizzaro World? They’re completely intent upon following the Bizzaro Code to do anything that’s the opposite of common sense or the will of the people.
