This is either a late April 1 hoax or an amazing story

This photo posted on Flickr is supposed to be an iPod that deflected a bullet from an AK47, saving the life of a soldier in Iraq. I’d like to believe it, but whenever a description of something starts off, “this is from my friend’s, wife’s uncle,” I remain skeptical until it is analyzed by Snopes.com. Again, I’d like to believe it, but the elements of a hoax are too obvious. In addition to the convoluted source of the photo, another indication it’s a hoax is that it’s an iPod. Pranksters know that gullible Apple cultists* never doubt any miraculous claim about what one of its products can do.

*Please, no attacks. I am one.

(Thanks, Cole.)

  • You know, I didn’t even think that it may have been a hoax. I guess I’ll be keeping an eye on Snopes, as well.
