Of all the
snarky Apple references in pop culture, my all time favorite is this
brief clip from The Simpsons. During a school assembly, Kearney tells his buddy, "...take a memo on your Newton:
Beat up Martin." He scribbles away only to see the Newton's handwriting recognition interpret his memo as
"Eat up Martha."
A few years ago, a number of plastic Simpsons characters were issued, and the
Kearney character actually shipped with a tiny Newton with "Eat up Martha" on the screen. I have one in my
is a picture of the Kearney toy.
