What you are about to read is from an actual court filing. Gregory McKenna has filed suit against Apple, which he alleges is conspiring with the mob in an effort to coerce him to return to a New York-based modeling agency he quit in 2000. As explained in the 124-page complaint, an iPod shuffle he bought on eBay in 2005 and an iPod mini he bought new from an Apple store in 2006 -- possibly a nano, as minis were discontinued a year prior -- both contain receivers that have allowed the Mafia to send audio death threats that play in tandem with his music. The suit seeks $14.3 million total and lists ten defendants in all, including a local mechanic, a private investigator, the St. Louis Police Department, the FBI, and the US Department of Justice. While our initial reaction is to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all, it's hard not to feel sad for McKenna and his state of mind -- of course, if by some stroke of fate he manages to prove it was all one big conspiracy perpetrated by the Mafia, well, guess we'll be ending up with egg on our faces.

I don't know what's scarier.. the fact that this guy took his time to write a 124 page complaint about this issue or the fact that the Mafia might be transmitting death threats to us.

Sounds like a great case of paranoid type of schizophrenia; since his thoughts are formally intact, he can actually write 124 pages and it can still all make sense.

Too bad his premises are - probably - all wrong.

Yeah, it's sad.
Still funny. Which makes me even more sad.

So, how do I get in on that action if they win? The Mafia is totally sending me death threats through my brothers iPod when he uses it with some speakers.

Also, my friends are constantly being attacked by the Mafia whenever they go on MySpace. The even have ads for the Mafia! We should sue MySpace as well so that we can all go back to living our previously Mafia free lives in peace.

Death threats, the only thing I heard from an Ipod was a message casting doubt on my sexuality.
