$16 - $28 from Mutator »

People seem to love their iPhones. Almost as much as they seem to love to bitch about them. Damn autocorrect, good-for-nothing maps, battery life of a gallon of mocha almond fudge in the hands of pregnant woman, innate tendency to roll the audio for White Men Can't Hump in the middle of my great-aunt's funeral.... Mutator creator Ron Adair sympathizes particularly with that last plight of the iPhone...

$26.04 - $35.40 from Red Bubble »

I don't know. My phone acts possessed enough without a Ghostbusters ghost trap encasement. The last thing I need on top of frozen screens, 30-minute battery lives, and misfired text messages sent via my right butt cheek is Slimer sloshing around inside there oozing all over my circuit board....
