Do Geeks Get Irony?

cartoon from

Dave Walker published this cartoon over on the Cartoon Church site yesterday, highlighting all the flaws and downsides we fail to notice in our ideal gadgets.

What is most amusing though is that the cartoon was picked up by Gizmodo, a gadget themed blog, and with one exception, all the respondents seemed to totally miss the point and produce what seem like serious feature lists. Indeed one even turns up in the comments for the original post – making the point Dave is trying to make quite brilliantly…

Maybe it’s a geek thing – certainly Beth can probably highlight one or two occasions where she has ended up being a sanity check against my justification for a new gadget purchase!
