KTLA 'Reporter' Makes Fun of iPhone Line-Sitters, Gets Called a Jackass on Live TV

KTLA Reporter Eric Spillman went down to the local iPhone line on Friday to cover it for his station. His version of coverage consisted of standing next to the line and asking hard hitting questions such as "Have any of these people ever seen a naked woman before?" not to anyone in particular, but to the camera. Not that I'm against making fun of geeks, but such an unoriginal and unfunny approach just set him up to be called out. When he finally did approach someone in line, the whole thing got a little more awkward. Kudos to the guy in line for making Spillman look even more stupid. [Eric Appel]


Geez... the iPhone fanboys (and it seems many Gizmodo readers) really do not have much of a sense of humor. What true geek has never heard that before? If you haven't been asked if you've seen a naked chick or had sex before, you're not a true geek.

I'm shocked at the lack of sense of humor of this community. If we can't take a bit of jackassery or asshattedness every once in a while poking fun at our love of gadgets and all things electronic, all we are is a bunch of Mac users with a gadget fetish.
