Feast your eyes on how Apple hopes you remember its visionary founder, Steve Jobs.

That thing is a scale- model of the winning design, which was selected from among 10,000 entries. Were they all this ugly?

It’s memorable, for whatever that’s worth. It’s also nothing like anything Jobs would have probably approved. He was all about clean design that made intuitive sense. That statue has Cyrillic letters sticking out of the side, because the designer is Serbian. Also, it has a tiny, pitted pinhead. It is basically a disturbing Pez dispenser, but without candy. The full-size 10 to 15 foot version will be built and stand outside Apple HQ in Cupertino, CA, where it will frighten children and impressionable adults for generations to come.

Hey, at least it doesn't illustrate those famous liberal activities from the parades in San Francisco.

If that was the best design, I'd hate to see the worst. It'd probably scare the bejesus out of you on sight.

Srsly tho, why didn't they just put Steve's body, turtleneck and all, in a giant block of plexiglass, like they did for that human body exhibit? Then, he could inhabit the lobby of Apple HQ for all the faithful to visit, like Lenin in Moscow.

I never knew Jobs invented Pez dispensers or that he had a giant left-handed member.

Oh, jeez. Now I'll NEVER be able to un-see that.

I dunno. The object on the left of the stanchion looks like the hilt of a sword, which seems appropriate as Jobs was a backstabbing SOB.

Did the "artist" provide any explanation for what he thought he was representing in this statue? I would love to read one.

If only people would read what Marx had to say, many puzzles would be solved.

If Apple picked it, it's time to short Apple.

Jobs would never have given it the OK.
