The Mac User's Creed

Earlier today I was joking around with some of my friends at work. One of them made a comment about Marine's being brainwashed and I immediately started screaming the Marine Corps Rifleman's Creed. Well, at least to the best of my ability. This resulted in us doing a quick Google search, studying up on the actual creed, and eventually giving me the brilliant idea to appropriate the text and create the Mac User's Creed. And this is what I came up with.

The Mac User's Creed:

"This is my Mac. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My Mac is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My Mac, without me, is useless. Without my Mac, I am useless. I must run my Mac true. I must recruit greater numbers than my competitor who is trying to outsell me.  I must convert him before he converts me. I WILL...

My Mac and myself know that what counts in this world is not the numbers we crunch, the documents we draft, nor the pie charts we make. We know that it is the creativity that counts. WE WILL BE CREATIVE...

My Mac is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its iSight and its ports. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my Mac clean and ready. We will become part of each other. WE WILL...

Before God, I swear this creed. My Mac and myself are the defenders of my operating system. We are the masters of our competitors. WE ARE THE SAVIORS OF MY LIFE.

So be it, until victory is Apple's and there is no competitor, but peace!"
