The story you're about to read is not (entirely) true. It is, however, more accurate than most things on network television.

The launch may still be almost a week away, but the most rabid Apple fanboys are already lining up to get their hands on Apple’s new iPhone 4. Well, one of them is, anyway.

Word broke this week that a single poor soul has started camping out alone outside of a Dallas-area Apple Store. A photo of the presumably-girlfriendless man ran in The Dallas Morning News this week:

We at eSarcasm figured there had to be other similarly iconic images floating around, so we started doing some digging. And, sure enough, we found three very telling photos from recent months.

Just remember: You saw ’em here first.
