Apple Reports Sluggish Sales of iPod XXL

Atlanta, GA - After much anticipation, Apple has came out with the newest iPod. Released on February 6th as a side promotion to the new “iPod Shuffle”, this iPod was surely anticipated to take the portable music player industry by storm.

The iPod XXL features 2,000 Terabytes of storage and is capable of holding 6 Billion music files and over 45 years of continuous playback. According to Apple representative Steve Smith, “You can start playing your iPod XXL when you are born, and will not hear the same song twice until you are just about ready to retire.”

Weighing in at roughly 175 pounds, the iPod XXL packs a powerful punch. Although it measures 4 feet tall by almost 3 feet wide, Apple continues to stress the point that this iPod is still portable. “It can be easily hauled in pickups, U-Hauls, trailers, and is conveniently stored in many backseats of full sized cars.

Although the XXL stands out among the crowd, sales for the new music player have remained quite sluggish. Apple declined to comment on the issue.

Did You Hear the One About the Old Man and the Wailing Wall?

In Jerusalem, a CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a long, long time. So she decided to investigate. She went to the Wailing Wall, and there he was!

She watched him pray and, after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, she approached him for an interview.

"I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN,” she said. “Sir, may I ask you how long have you been coming to the Wall and praying?"

"For about 60 years," he replied.

"60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?" she asked.

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and friendship."

"And how do you feel after doing this for 60 years?" she asked.

“Like I'm talking to a f**king wall.".

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
