Check Out Simspons Creator Matt Groening’s 1989 Apple Student Guide [Hilarious Gallery]

Back before The Simpsons and Futurama were even glimmers in his eye, Matt Groening did some contract work for Apple Computers. The result was this 1989 Apple Student’s Guide called Who Needs A Computer Anyway?, which features many of Groening’s Life in Hell characters. Check it out!

What’s funny to me about this guide is actually how little any of these supposed computer archetypes actually resembles the kind of hip, fashionable user we currently think of as a Mac owner…. although I suppose the Technoid (on page 2 of our gallery) looks a bit like Steve Jobs.

Tell us which of the Groening stereotypes below are you?
