    Some of the "I'm a Mac" ads are really funny, and over the last several months they have started to spawn children (some legitimate, some clearly not) that are even funnier. I don't know how many of you have seen these but I thought they were worth sharing. :lol:

    The first one is a real Mac / PC ad compilation. The ones after that are just a small selection of the spinoffs.
