Funny Friday: The Steve Jobs legacy

The passing away of Apple icon, Steve Jobs affected  millions around the world.

Steve Jobs definitely put his own personal dent to this universe.

The Greeks, known for their sense of humor and sarcasm during tough economic and social times, are using the obituary picture of Steve Jobs to mock the austerity measures imposed by the so-called socialist government and particularly the US-born prime minister, George Papandreou.

An unknown artist created the image below, stigmatizing the lack of job creation by the current government; the top navigation menu depicts the Greek national coat of arms, along with options that appear esoteric at first:

  • There is plenty of money” – Famous pre-election quote by George Papandreou
  • Fast-Track – An economy buzzword to create new jobs
  • Haircuts – Spend-cutting to the point of financial no growth
  • AiMak/AiPant – Reference to macintosh and the Greek financial minister
  • AiSixtir – A phrase that roughly translates as “go fuck it”
  • Support
  • Australia – The destination of choice for a new wave of Greek immigrants, due to its large Greek population and job availability

From Steve Jobs to No Jobs.

While some might consider this to be a heretic display of iconic Steve Jobs, it’s fair use due to the circumstances and the dire economic straights the average Greek faces.

Thank you, Steve Jobs for inspiring even after your untimely demise.

    Regarding Australia, there’s some even more picturesque connection with Papandreou as he bragged at some point for the success of his government (or his own, i am not sure) to arrange with Australia an easier in bureaucratic terms immigration there for Greeks ….

    Nick – As you may or may not be aware of, Melbourne in Australia is the 2nd city with the biggest population of Greeks after Athens, Greece. So it made sense to press for such measures.
