Apple Macintosh Jr.: 'The power to crush the other kids'

FORTUNE -- The provenance of this charming parody is unclear. It has been attributed to Saturday Night Live, and according to YouTube, NBC Universal has claimed the copyright. But can that be right? But in most versions I've seen, there's a Comedy Central logo in the lower right-hand corner. In any event, you can tell Apple (AAPL) didn't create it because Macintosh is misspelled.

Thanks, Kitty, for the link.
