Cracked Round-Up: iPad Edition

This week saw the launch of Apple's iPad. We initially planned to commemorate this historic event by writing the entire round-up on an iPad. Unfortunately, our efforts to purchase one were symied when the assholes at the Apple Store refused to accept a gunney sack full of qualuudes and empty needles as payment. They say 'think different', but they really just want you to pay in credit card debt like everyone else.


Sometimes there's just no graceful way out; Fortey kicked our week off with an article on awkward situations we all deal with. Brockway wrote about drugs that are legal for the first time in Cracked history, while Seanbaby pits The Incredible Hulk against World of Warcraft. Dan O'Brien was up last, with a science textbook for mentally handicapped clown rap fans.
