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

Following today’s “Back to the Mac” special event, Apple has announced it’ll hold another special event in November in order to announce plans for an exciting new special event.

The November event, entitled “Something Revolutionary,” will take place at Apple’s Cupertino campus on Wednesday, November 17. Invitations distributed to the media depict a black turtleneck with the company’s logo and what appears to be a mustard stain.

According to sources close to the situation, Apple decided to arrange the event mainly because it didn’t want to let a month pass by without some sort of attention-grabbing gathering.

eSarcasm was able to obtain an early draft of notes for Steve Jobs’ speech. Upon close inspection, however, it appears the document contains only a word cloud filled with flowery adjectives.

  • You know, if Apple does enough of these magical events, then Tim Cook will have something to do. And an increase in the number of events will provide an increase in employment for fanbois – I mean respected objective journalists.
