Visualizing Anti-iPad Android Evangelism

It sort of bothers me that the mascot for Android is not actually an android (a machine designed to look like a man) but is rather a garbage can robot with the sophistication of that pair of fart joke characters from South Park, flapping dysfunctional appendages while being propelled by a vaporous cloud of hot air. Shameless.
So naturally, I associate Android evangelists with televangelists. They both say ridiculously silly things, promise absurd utopian fantasies are right around the corner as their organizations inhale money from the gullible in exchange for pretty much nothing but more nonsense and religion fueling upset, xenophobic anger amongst their followers.
Since I’m in the wonderful position of having my motorcycle accident-loosened front teeth pulled tomorrow in preparation of a year long process of bone grafts and titanium implants that will someday, if all goes right, return me back to a semblance of normality, I thought I’d celebrate with a visualization of televangelists promoting their fear and anger about iPad, and their openness to love everything else.
