Apple announced the new iPhone 11 on Tuesday, and Twitter is having a field day making fun of the phone’s camera-heavy design.

The iPhone 11 has two cameras stacked atop each other, and the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max sport three cameras, arranged in a triangle.

Given Apple’s history of making sleek, elegant gadgets, the new phones struck many people as decidedly clunky. Some joked that the design was reminiscent of unglamorous objects, from stoves and spiders to bowling balls and … Pikachu.

The iPhone 11 is the first iPhone to be announced since the departure of Apple’s longtime design chief, Jony Ive, in July.

Twitter just can’t help seeing the Pro cameras as other things …

… like a bowling ball.

Or Superman’s enemy Brainiac.

Some see a fidget spinner.

And an electric shaver.

One person even compared the phone to the monsters in hazmat suits in the film “Monsters, Inc.”

There’s a certain resemblance to a Furby.

And Pikachu.^tfw

All those shiny cameras might also bring to mind a spider.

Or the Little Green Men from “Toy Story.”

It’s a phone! No, it’s a stovetop!

The phone’s camera layout reminded a lot of people of a stove.

But you can’t really cook a stir fry with an iPhone … yet.
