Pad people

Before there was the iPad, there was, well, the iPad. Mad TV's prescient 2007 2005 skit managed to anticipate the heavy flow of feminine protection jokes making the rounds this week.

While some contend the iPad name is a tactical error, the association will surely recede as Apple's latest fetish object becomes part of our cultural lexicon, just as the word iPod no longer conjures up images of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. (Except, you know, for me.)

Face it: Steve Jobs will always have the last laugh, at least until Microsoft releases its replicant version a year or two down the road.
