Drawing via Apple (CC-BY)
Prepare to have your mind blown.
Apple is all about patenting their entire image, right down to the layout of their squeaky-clean stores. So it should come as no surprise that the company just claimed a patent for a goddamn paper bag.
I mean, just look at this gorgeous, revolutionary, courageous work of art:Have you ever seen a bag with so much poise? It looks like an Olympic gymnast or a runway model, strutting its stuff in the dirty backseat of your 2004 Toyota Corolla. But hey, even the most hard-working paper bags—made from 60% post-consumer recycled material—have to let their hair down every once in a while. Here she is just chilling. It's a sweatpants days; don't judge. Oh, is it time for a little workout? Look at this sexy side shot, showcasing just how flexible this gorgeous bleached paper bag really is. Woah! Apple, this might be a little too risqué for a patent filing? Are you even allowed to show stuff like this on the internet? One second, let me go ahead and tone it down a little. OK, that's better. I apologize to anyone with small children who may have inadvertently caught a glimpse of the previous image. Here we see a drawing that depicts either a close-up macro shot of the string that serves as a handle for the bag or an artistic rendering of an Einstein-Rosen bridge–better known as a "wormhole"—which theoretically serves as a shortcut between two distinct points in spacetime. I honestly can't be sure either way. This drawing, which seems to have accidentally gotten mixed in with Apple's patent filing, appears to show a slug attempting to scale a large wall. This? I don't know what the hell this is.
Apple accidentally included hardcore porn in iMessenger's GIF search
Bugs come along with the launch of any new feature, but we doubt Apple expected hardcore pornography to be one of them.
