Humor The German city of Hamburg will soon be getting one of the biggest Apple Stores in the world. Construction isn't complete yet, and a group of people calling themselves the '.WAV Collective' decided it was time for a practical joke. Posing as construction workers, they planted an interesting logo on the store's facade. In broad daylight. And they videotaped it.

LOL - now that's funny.

The video is what? Two fools putting a Windows logo of sorts on the side of a construction shroud. Obviously hilarious. :S

If you know it's an Apple store being built it's then two Windows fanboys putting a Windows logo of sorts on the side of an Apple Store construction shroud. Again, incredibly hilarious. Not.

If it was two jerks putting an Apple logo on the side of a Windows or Google convention the same people who think this is funny would probably be screaming Apple Fanboy idiots!

I suppose it depends on your sense of humor. A friend of mine cracks up laughing every time there's a story about malware found in Google's Android Marketplace Apps because he's been saying for ages it would happen over and over. He's been laughing a lot over the past couple of weeks. But at least he's balanced, he also laughs about the new Mac Malware for the same reason. I personally don't find either funny, just sad. Like this video.

This has nothing to do with fanboys. Where do you get that from? Why is everything so black and white?

These are just a bunch of guys pulling a prank. Not everything has to have a ZOMG APPLE VS M$ LULZZ11!1-basis.

Apple fanboys don't need to resort to that kind of silliness, Apple already does it for them (see also: the "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ad campaign).

This is just Apple getting the tiniest taste of their own medicine, not to mention proof-positive that Apple's fanboys can dish out but they can't take it.
