As an Apple enthusiast, I'm disappointed by the disaster surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It takes all the fun out of arguing with Android fanboys.
ANDROID FANBOY: "Only SHEEPLE buy iPhones! Yadda yadda open yadda yadda choice."
ME: "Oh, yeah? I can use my iPhone on a plane."
ANDROID FANBOY: *silence*
ME: "Also, my iPhone doesn't explode. How about the Galaxy Note 7?"
ANDROID FANBOY: *crickets*
No fun at all in that argument.
But here's something that is fun: Social media has been buzzing with jokes and memes about the phone fiasco. A few of our favorites:

"The iPhone doesn't have a headphone jack but the Galaxy literally explodes" is a perfect metaphor for this election.— Josh Marvine (@JoshMarvine) September 13, 2016

My colleague Paul Rainford pens a haiku about the fiasco: Selling the Sizzle.
