I have to tip my hat to Apple for its creativity and wicked sense of humor. Today NPR reported that Apple’s latest version of Mac OS X has a creative error message for pirates that try to hack it (presumbly from Mac’s new Intel hardware platform to run on standard Wintel systems):

There once was a user that whined
His existing OS was so blind
He’d do better to pirate
An OS that ran great
But found his hardware declined

That’s brilliant.
