Apple fuhrer Steve Jobs is reportedly enraged at having his ninja aspirations denied by Japanese customs, after they stymied his efforts to take shuriken out of the country on his private jet.

As retaliation he threatened he would “never come to a country like this again!”

According to reports in rag Spa!, Steve Jobs and his family paid a secret visit to Japan in July, arriving in Jobs’ private jet at Kansai Internaional Airport for a typical tourist itinerary, paying a visit to Kyoto.

On arriving at the airport for his return journey, he was apparently outraged at having to declare his newly acquired shuriken to customs, protesting “Who would be so stupid as to commit terrorism on their own jet?!” and “I’ll never come to a country like this again!”

Presumably he is unaware of the humiliating rigours of travelling peasant-class on a normal airliner – restrictions in no small part the result of American aviation policy.

Meanwhile there appear to be those who would be quite happy if he were to carry out his threat:

“Don’t come again!”

“Quit pretending you’re a state guest – if you don’t come again, that’s fine!”

“Idiots who can’t even respect the laws of other countries had better not come here again!”

“Bringing his own shuriken to the airport and then getting enraged about it. This Apple cult leader is a pretty cool guy.”

“The reason they’re so strict is because of the terrorism in your own damn country!”

“That baldie’s as intolerant as ever I see.”

“Those Yanks think they can do whatever they like, don’t they?”

“This is Japan, if you want you can go and wave guns around in your own country!”

“Shuriken – haha. Honestly those foreigners really love that samurai/ninja stuff…”

“It’s Spa, they are probably blowing this way out of proportion.”

“Why’d he even have to buy something like that in Japan?”

“Just which country’s fault is it security became so tight?”

“Does baldie think just because he has his own jet he can fill it with drugs and weapons and go wherever he likes?”

“Letting someone like this have shuriken – no wonder they were concerned about terrorism…”

“Make no mistake, he’ll be back.”

    Declaring a country as anathema because one guy didn't bend the rules for you is kind of immature...

    To be fair, though, this really probably is being blown way out of proportions.

    Well this shit is hardly unique to Japan try dealing with US customs agents and airport security.

    He should have mailed them to himself.

    It is blown very far out of proportion and the remark was probably something Jobs said in a moment of rage but does not really mean.

    Does Japan even have a tourist industry? They REALLY don't attempt to appeal or cater to the foreign tourists.

    Actually its a PR thing, famous people can damage the way a country is seen. I hate Apple products but i cant deny its presence in the market and its social power.

    too those who don't understand, he pretty much famous on the tech industry and to most iPhone/Pod/Pad people.

    Well, it is stated in airports around the world, at least the countries I had visited already, "Weapons are strictly prohibited when boarding the plane." Regardless if it is a private jet or not. He should have learned to read and follow the rules before he even decided going emo for his poor shuriken.

    And the people who reasoned out terrorism on him, that was stupid! Who indeed would want to terrorize their own private jets, they should have told him that it's the standard operating procedure in the airport so it would shut him up...

    Seriously, just because you're rich and famous doesn't mean you should already be above the law... [-_-]

    He/she has a point. You don't have to look far to find a story that's been inflated beyond reason.

    Steve Jobs has always considered himself above other, merely mortal, folks.

    This is hardly surprising.

    I wonder if I buy a wooden sword like used by Saeko(of Highschool of the dead feme fatale) from a souvenir shop in Japan and come to the airport would I be treated as a Terrorist? If that so they must ban cripple people carrying a wooden cane. LOL

    Jobs may be a douche but I support his view that this is bullshit.
    This problem is not just in Japan it's in most of the world.

    Airport security and customs agents are pretty much useless oxygen thieves no matter where you go.

    They'll hassle you over the stupidest shit imaginable yet they don't stop the tidal wave of illegal drugs or dangerous counterfeit merchandise.

    BTW there never was a case of airport security or customs preventing an act of terrorism so think about that.

    You're awfully harsh on people made to do a job, and it's not like you can stop all illegal wares without completely tearing apart everyone's luggage.

    Also that last bit is completely idiotic. No airport security, anywhere, has ever stopped a terrorist activity? Jesus, you'd think there'd be a 9/11 every few days.

    He should have earned the right to use that thing by using ninja skills to get it through.

    Seriously though, couldn't you just order a shuriken easily online?

    I somehow support him, but not for his same reasons.

    Although Japan is a very nice touristic destination, it is actually one of the latest place in the world I would like to for business making.

    I don't see myself in Japan again for a long time. Probably never.

    A Shuriken?! What a fucking tool. With all of that money, you'd think he'd buy an authentic Edo period sword.

    As for him never visiting Japan again, good! Maybe Japan will stop taking several rounds of hot foam from his cock, after this.

    This is pretty dumb. To those saying, "Why a shuriken?", well wouldn't it make a pretty cool souvenir, especially since it's a very Japan-related item? Come on, use some logic here.

    And all the hate flying around is pretty funny. I wonder how everybody would be reacting if, say, it was Bill Gates or Steve Ballmer who was in this situation. I'm no Apple fanatic, but seriously, put down the haterade.

    Only a small part of Japan is actually racist its just that the ones who are racist tend to believe they are speaking for everyone else because of a certain nuking incident

    2chan is 95% racist though

    They were racist long before that. Japan taught them that is Japan was invaded, all of the foreigners would rape and kill their children, etc. So when GIs began to enter towns, women & children jumped off cliffs.

    And before that, they tried their hardest to prevent foreigners from entering their country, using technology that was 300 years behind the rest of the world.

    Japan; isolation & xenophobia are second nature

    As much as I hate Jobs and Apple is one of the most evil computer companies next to Microsoft, the trolls in Japan can laugh it up all they want.

    But at the end of the day, some corporate representative from Japan is going to have to personally deliver those shuriken and then openly admit that his penis is smaller than Steve Jobs' penis. The representative will beg for forgiveness and then Jobs will demand to be blown first, because he deserves it!

    Don't deny it, you fucking know it is true.

    There is a new News Article made by Apple saying it wasn't Steve Jobs but that his plane was there the day the Airport in Japan stopped a small private plane with said items. Looks like damage control is already under way. My guess is like the other guy above said, someone from Japan is on the way to Jobs house with a pouch full of throwing stars for Jobs to have.
